Microsoft Outlook offers a good opportunity to work efficiently both online and offline by Cache Exchange Mode feature. Just by enabling cache exchange feature of Outlook, users do not have to be connected to the network to be able to access mails or any other information - they can simply do that from their local copy. In conjunction with exchange server and cache exchange mode is enabled, Outlook makes a local copy of mailbox and store contents of this mailbox which is known as offline folders or OST file.

Cache Exchange Feature of Outlook: When connection to Microsoft exchange is unavailable, at this time you can use work offline in Microsoft Outlook. Enabling cache exchange mode of Outlook allows you to establish a connection to exchange server, and any changes when you are working offline are synchronized with your exchange server. This offline file or local copy of mailbox contains the same items. You don’t need to worry whether you are working on local mailbox or exchange server mailbox.

Scenario Which Demands OST to PST Conversion:

If any employee wants to change their working environment want to take their mailbox data items (mails, contacts, etc.) with them. Mostly people take some chosen steps, first they delete the Microsoft Exchange account from their profile or they take the OST file with them, not realizing it can only be opened using the account that created it. In new working environment, Microsoft Outlook does not support to open OST files. Reason being, while keeping an update of exchange server in offline data folder, Microsoft Exchange server encrypt each mailbox items. It makes ost file inaccessible or orphan in new working environment. This scenario demands OST to PST Conversion from your sides.

What to do next? Opening an orphan OST file into Outlook is not as easy as it might appear because of encrypted policy of exchange server. So you need to take the help of any third party solution which match with your demands. Search Google, Yahoo or another search engine for searching OST to PST Conversion tool. With each individual product website, you should compare feature list to see how many of your basic needs.

Point Out the Feature While Choosing Good OST Recovery Tool:

  • Ability to recover emails, contacts, journals, and attachments also.

  • During OST to PST Conversion, software should not harm original formatting of email and attachments.

  • It should not restrict OST file size limit, and works well with highly corrupted OST file also.

  • Available in trial version, to check the product efficiency before making full payment.

  • Should offer a chance to export OST mailbox data into other email environment like; OST, EML and MSG also.
