“I want to move all my mail account details from Outlook OST to PST file. I don’t know much about Outlook and need someone’s assistance to do this. Is there any easy way to transfer content from Outlook OST file to new PST file? Please share your comments.”

Microsoft Outlook is an amazing email client for desktop and laptop users. Especially to edit mail account in offline mode, Outlook is the most suitable Microsoft application. In the presence of Exchange Server Outlook can be enabled to work in offline mode, wherein all mail data will be saved in .ost file format on system hard drive. This OST file holds all Outlook attributes including notes, contacts, tasks, journals, email folders, rules, etc. just like PST file. And you can switch between Outlook OST and PST files at required point of time. Nevertheless, not only is this process time consuming but sometimes it may error out due to user mistakes.
