Microsoft Outlook unable to access my offline mailboxes data due to some error with OST file. How can I recover my emails? Help!
The OST file is just an email cache file. Go into Control Panel > Mail and create a new profile. Launch Outlook and the OST should be recreated.
Neemobeer says it right, the mail file can be extracted easily from Control Panel>Mail. The OST file contains all your emails with the right details of the mail folders. If that doesn't work, you shall look out for some tools that could extract the OST files.
When it happens to me, usually only after fresh install, i delele the ost and start outlook again. It rebuilds the ost cache.
