OST file in different domain

Microsoft OFFICE


  • 1. Long documents
    Where will I find instructions on how to produce a document in Word lengthwise on A4 size paper? I have seen some which were produced on DeskJet Printers but there is nothing in their instructions and the makers understandably will not help in problems connected with Office. My OS is Wind.XPPro and Office 2003. Thank you all you clever ones!
  • 2. word documents shows 0KB , blank when opened
    Hi, I have very important word and excel documents on my computer that I update often. suddenly last week, whenever I click on any of those documents I get a blank page or spreadsheet. Also, when I use windows explorer to check the file size of any of these documents, it shows a size of 0KB. The file name is still there but the document is completely empty.When I ran Norton antivirus (updated to date) it does not detect a virus on these files nor anywhere on my computer. all my documents are saved on my hard drive, and the problem is widespread on our network. My OS is windows XP SP2, office xp, and I am using norton 2004 fully updated. Others experincing this problem are using windows 98 SE with office 2000. I looked everywhere on google and I found many people who have the same problem, but none of posting had a solution to the problem.

OST file in different domain

Postby GoodOne » Sat, 29 Jan 2005 15:32:34 GMT

To cut a long story short, a new server was installed with SBS and the old
replaced, and even though we gave the domain the same name, clients saw it
as a new domain and therefore all outlook emails, tasks etc were lost (it
was not synchronising to an exchange).

Question is, I still have the original OST file but if I try to connect to
it by replacing the new OST file with it a message displays:

'the file c:\......\Outlook.ost cannot be accessed because it has been
configured for use with a different mailbox'.

Is there a way to import the contents into my new OST file or am I doomed to
a painfully slow death?

Any help appreciated

Yes - and the server, and all user accounts, computer accounts, have
different SIDs, even if they look the same to your eye.

Not sure what you mean - your mailbox data was on the server, and was not
restored/migrated to the new Exchange server? That's not good! Or have I

In the future, make sure you sync all OST files, etc., to the server before
doing any sort of migration like this...and make sure nobody uses their
offline data at all for the duration.

Yep. See the "SID" comment above...

There are a couple of possibilities - some are $$$....

1) Create a new profile and configure it for offline folder usage
2) Logon to the new profile and get it to sync one time
3) Close Outlook
4) Break network connection
5) Replace OST in new profile with the OST you need to access
6) Start Outlook in offline mode
7) Export the items to a PST

- Or google for OST2PST

- Or see www.exchangerecovery.com

Also note - Outlook questions are best asked in microsoft.public.outlook -
and since this concerns Exchange, also note

Does anybody know how to restore email and other data from

5.using OST file under different login

Is there a way to acess an exchange mailbox when oflinbe 
BUT logging in to windows XP under s seperate username.

The issue is that I need to log undera diffrent username 
when out of the office becasue I cannot use the internet 
(DSL/LAN) under the office log in.

So, I have a VIRGIN log in and have access to the OST 
file (under C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local 
Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook\Outlook.ost) 
for outlook.

I do not need to have send/reoive functionaloity but just 
need to be able to read my emails and acces teh pst file 
(that's easy).

So is there a way to trick outlook into thiking that it 
is in offline mode with a difenet profile?

many thnaks
