How to Convert Outlook 2003 OST to PST File?

Imagine a world without instant messaging and email communication. You can hardly imagine any field be it home or office that does not use the services of emails and messaging applications. One application that has survived in the world of email communication is MS Office Outlook. According to a recent study conducted, Microsoft Outlook happens to be the most used email client by both professional and personal communication.

Microsoft Office Outlook application exists in several versions, let us consider Outlook 2003. Similar to other versions, MS Outlook 2003 contains two data files such as OST (offline mode) and PST (online mode). As Outlook offers users to perform certain tasks in offline mode(in the absence of internet), when network connection resumes the synchronization process takes place between Exchange Server and the data of OST file will be shared to the PST file successfully to work in online mode.
