Reading .pst files

Postby charleskirke » Tue Sep 12, 2017 1:57 pm

I am temporarily without my computer with an MSOffice suite on it. I have backed up my files and am delighted that OpenOffice allows me to use all of them... except my .pst files. Can it be done, and if so how?
OpenOffice4, Windows 10

A quick search indicates that .pst files are used by Microsoft Outlook, the e-mail client associated with Microsoft Office.
Neither Apache Open Office nor Libre Office has an e-mail client included.
You will have to try other programs for the .pst files. An e-mail client that I have seen recommended on this board is Thunderbird
OpenOffice 4.1.6 and LibreOffice 6.0.6.2 on Windows 7 Pro & Ultimate

You can go for free tool https://www.convertertools.org/free/pst-file-viewer/ and that can provide you the view of Outlook data.
