i got a user on our network wanting to retrieve data from his .ost file that another retard created. Im trying to view it in Outlook 2003 Pro, but it wont recognize it.

What should i do for it to recognize it or how can i retrieve that data so that this user can get off my back about it.

I use .pst files all the time and they are no problem, but this is an Office data file, instead of an outlook data file...

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

.ost is for outlook express...try opening it there...

sorry...i posted that in haste..i was incorrect... .ost is the exchange offline mail file..for viewing mail when not connected to the server...if you put .ost in the help section of outlook check the section for the inbox repair tool...see if that helps
