Edit a PST file without outlook

Recommended Posts

I have a Outlook *.pst file that is a mess, and I do not want to add it to my own mailbox due to the amount of stuff in the Archive. What I need is some sort of application/tool that allows me to open the archive in a folder structure overview thing and that allows me to edit (read: move) mails/folders around. I've tried the Microsoft support, the community around Tech-net and none has an answer to my problem except for scripting my way out of it, but that wont happen due to the way the folders are structured.

What happend is 2-3 archive files that got merged, added dublicates of mails and dublicates of folders. I want to merge the folders manually to make sure that all the items in the folders gets to the right places.

I was hoping some of you know a trick to this problem.

to give an overview of the mess....

Why not open the PST in Outlook with no account configured? Then make the desired chnages/adjustments and then put it back on the machine or into the users Outlook profile.

No outlook profile has to be configured to open a PST.

u said there are duplicate files right? u can get rid of them with http://www.mapilab.com/ softwares. i've used the duplicate remover and remove duplicates software. they're pretty fast & nicely interfaced..
