Exchange server shut down... now have problems with .ost

B

bill2010

I worked for a startup that, unfortunatly, ran out of funding at the 11th hour when a critical investor pulled out. I was using my laptop to connect to their outsorced Exchange server, which was terminated. I switched to my Personal .pst data file and removed the Exchange server .ost connection... losing my calanders, archived files, etc. in the process.

However, I am still getting error messages from my rules and alerts that were associated with the .ost file and a message from Outlook that there are unsent emails in my Outbox, although there are none in my Personal .pst file (which is set as the default).

Outlook seems to still be associated with the .ost file, even though it is not visible.

I have NO idea what is going on or how to fix this mess..

You will need to create a new mail profile via the mail applet in the
control panel. (don't copy the existing one. create new and then delete the
old. once done, then review your rules and cleanup where necessary.)

Do you want to recover the contents of the ost? If you just recently removed
the Exchange account, you might be able to recover it - then copy the
contents you want to keep to a pst before making a new profile.

Fix the OST file problem without the exchange server with this ToolsBaer OST to PST Conversion Tool. Nevertheless, the majority of free programs available online have a restricted feature set. This application gives a free file preview option before converting them into PST but you can only convert a certain amount of data. Users can convert all of their OST file data at once, including emails, contacts, calendars, attachments, notes, and tasks. When you use the instant working tools, you save a ton of time. Windows and Mac operating systems can all run the application. It is possible to download it directly without wasting with a free trial which is a demo version of this app.

My recommendation is to make OST file conversion outside of Outlook as simple as possible with SameTools Convert OST to PST Software, I successfully finished my OST file conversion task. After the conversion, an Exchange Server or Outlook extension is no longer needed to open an OST file. Its user-friendly graphical interface makes the conversion procedure simple enough even for non-technical individuals to use. This utility, which works with all Windows OS and Microsoft Outlook versions, allows users to convert a small number of files into PST format. New users can take advantage of a free trial to convert a few OST files into PST and other formats like MSG, EML, EMLX, and Mbox formats.

Working swiftly and securely is the ToolsCrunch Mac OST to PST Converter Software. Email features like Inbox, Outbox, Sent Items, Notes, Tasks, Journals, Drafts, and so forth are associated with offline OST files. Users are able to retrieve OST files that are password-protected. A limited number of emails can be converted for free. Every Mac OS version is compatible with this app. Any version of Windows OS and Microsoft Outlook are supported by this program. Use the free trial versions of the program to install it. For additional information and 24/7 customer assistance, try the software's free demo version. With the help of this app's free trial, you may download and utilize this utility without cost.
