    pst files

    I have exported outlook data to a pst file but all my pst files seem to be associated with notepad so I can't import the data back into outlook.
    Any help on correcting this problem.
    Thanks

    Re: pst files

    why import? file > open > personal folders and open the pst directly.

    Re: pst files

    .pst does not normally have any association. My quess would be that someone on that machine double clicked on a .pst file and when the Open with dialog box came up the clicked on Notepad and OK without clearing the Always use this program check box.

    To open the file, just click on file open in Outlook and open it.

    <hr>To open the file, just click on file open in Outlook and open it.<hr>
    this is the only way to open it BTW. You can't double click on a pst, it needs added to a profile.
