Recovering mails from OST file

I recently realised that I had mails stuck in an OST file which I never exported into a PST. Cut a long story short, Outlook doesn’t like OSTs very much unless they are opened in the original account that they were created in. Doesn’t help when the account isn’t available anymore.

So off I went on happy search for the solution. Or to be more precise… one that I didn’t have to pay for. After some digging around I finally stumbled on this guy that was offering a free download for a program that could recover my mails!! *cue light at the end of the tunnel and angelic choral singing*

Check it out here

All I gotta say is… PHEW!! Thanks Walid. You saved my day =)

  1. Recovery Toolbox for Outlook from allow to you convert OST ot PST easy and fast. $49 is not expensive price for this tool.

  2. For recovering there is a good software-osttopst convertor,recover data from *.ost format and convert it to files with *.pst extension,restore personal information, contacts, messages, tasks and calendars may be lost,extract your data from *.ost file, it is stored just to speed up your connection with Microsoft Exchange Server,convert *.ost file to *.pst extension, that can be easily read by any email client, compatible with Microsoft Outlook,allows to read even corrupted files and you do not need to put any modifications to recovery process,will never modify source files, so, if you are not satisfied with this program, you can always try to return back to the beginning of process.
