    Outlook does not create new OST file in folder in ForceOSTPath.


    Win 10 build 1803 and Office 365.

    I have put ForceOSTPath set to D:|\folder name. When I add a new IMAP account the OST file appears in C:\users\****\Appdata\local\Microsoft\Outlook.

    That really shouldn't be should it?

    Thanks.

    :)

  2. Changing the File Type on an Outlook *.OST file.

    I did a stupid thing and inadvertently changed the file type of an Outlook 2016 OST file to a PDF file. I have tried to change the type of file that *.OST is used by to Outlook but Windows 10 does not let me. Does anyone have any suggestions.

    Thanks

    Outlook PST File Problem

    That is exactly what I was going to suggest. Export everything to another PST file, delete the old(or rather move it out of the default folder) and replace it with the new PST file that you exported.

    Outlook does not create new OST file in folder in ForceOSTPath.

    Accessing Outlook Data Files (.ost) from MAIL App after W10 upgrade

    After upgrading to Windows 10... I can't figure out how to ADD Data Files within the MAIL app. I have SEVERAL very old .ost files that I keep some old mail folders in that I used to be able to add to the FILE FOLDER list in Outlook. I can't seem to figure
    out where to do that in the MAIL app.

    Any Suggestions?

    Thanks,

    Kenny
