    Can't open saved PST files. (Outlook 2002)

    I've managed to work out how to save PST files and currently have them on a Zip disc. When I go to open the files I'm asked to indicate which program I want to use to open them. I select Outlook. However, the files do not open. Instead, Outlook opens a new EMAIL message and the saved outlook file appears as an attachment. 0bviously I am doing something wrong. Could anyone tell me what it is. I have to reinstall windows over the next few days and hoped there might be a convenient way of saving and reinstalling all my outlook data.

    PST files must be opened DIRECTLY from Outlook. They're not like DOCs, which you can double-click.

    Just do File-Open, Personal folder....from Outlook.

    Also, after installing anew, you can just find the new outlook.pst file and replace it with yours--that's actually the easiest way.
