How to search for hidden .pst files and recover lost emails



  • 1. Importing Contacts-where to put field?
    I am importing contacts from Goldmine via Excel and one of the features we frequently use is an account identification so we can run filters to segregate certain contacts. Is there a field in Outlook 07 that would be comparable to import this data into?
  • 2. Problem changing Printing Styles
    I seem to be unable to change the font size that my calendar prints as. Appointments are defaulted to a microscopic 8pt setting. I have changed the font size in the print setup and the default style that I'm using (weekly). I even changed the viewing size. Nothing seems to work. When I double check the setting, it's definitely set at 12 pt, but it still prints, and print previews at 8pt. Is this a bug?
  • 3. Changing default point size of text in Calendar
    I have Outlook 2003 on Win XP. In the Calendar (such as Day View and Week View), the point sizes of the fonts of the displayed text are too small for me. Is there any way to change the default point sizes to make the text larger from now on? -- Steven D. Litvintchouk Email: XXXX@XXXXX.COM Remove the NOSPAM before replying to me.

Interesting, thanks. I note it only seems to happen with some Bcc'd messages and not others. OOC do you know if this is fixed in the latest version?
  • 5. Opeing Attachments is frustrating
    When I receive e-mails with attachments in Outlook 2007, I click on the attachment, only to find another e-mail with another attachment. I click on that attachment, only to find another e-mail with another attachment, only to find another e-mail with another attachment. You get the point. I often have to do this 6 or 7 times before I get to the end and can actually click on the attachment and it is "there" and opens. Its like I have to open e-mail after e-mail to get to the attachment. If I access this very same e-mail account via the internet , rather than at my home computer, this very same attachment opens immediately. No wading through e-mail after email to get to it. What gives? Is there a setting in Outlook 2007 that is causing this, since it doesn't happen when I access my e-mail from the web outside of Outlook? Thank you.

That should not have affected your mail in any way.  What else did you do?

After upgrading to Outlook 2003 from Outlook 2000 I added an email account. I 
changed the default account from one to the other a couple of times then left

3.recovering lost emails from .pst


I accidentally deleted my "saved emails" folder from my Personal
Folders in outlook 2003 and later emptied the "deleted items" folder.
I lost over a year's worth of important email!  Before I defrag my
hard drive (much needed), is there ANY WAY I can recover these
emails?? (they were not left on the IMAP email server).  Doesn't
Microsoft hide them somewhere or archive them somehow in case an idiot
like me makes this mistake?  (they do not seem to be part of my
archive.pst backup file when I opened that to look at what was saved
there).  I searched my computer for other .pst files, but none
contained the lost email folder.  Is there any way to "roll back" to a
previous version of my .pst the same way I can roll back my system
files to a prior version?
