Opening ost files with Outlook 2013


How can one open existing ost files in Outlook 2013? I tried but I get a message that it is not an Outlook Data file.

An OST file is not the same as a PST file. It's a local copy of your mailbox, but in a mangled, dysfunctional format. :P

PST files are bad enough but at least you can open them directly. There are a number of tools around to convert OST to PST but I think they all cost. FWIW I have used Kernel tools a lot and they work well, their OST recovery tool would surely do what you need.

That said if you just want to find something, they have a free OST viewer program, one of their free tools.
