How you can add PST file to Outlook

Wednesday, January 4th, 2017

 

MS Outlook holds messages, appointments, notes, tasks, contacts, and other data items contained in mailbox in PST files or OST files. Let’s understand what differentiates these two file types of Outlook data files:

Outlook Data File (i.e. PST) is usually used for IMAP and POP3 email accounts.

Offline Outlook Data File (i.e. OST) comes into play when you chose to work offline with your Exchange account or decide to use Cached Mode of Exchange. Unlike PST, OST files can be easily created while Exchange Server is running.

For proper usage of Outlook email client, you need to configure one email account (for least). And each email account created with Outlook possesses a PST of its own. For instance, if you have created five email accounts, five individual PST files will be automatically created on your system. Also, these PST files will be attached with your Outlook profile.

But when PST files have been copied or moved from some external device or you have received them from other Outlook users, you can’t access your files unless they are added to your Outlook profile. This is how you can do this:

Such critical situations can only be resolved either by using a manual trick or by exploiting a specialized third-party tool.

1. Open Microsoft Outlook on your system, and click the File tab.

2. In Open & Export, click the Import/Export tab.

3. Click Import from another program or file, and then hit Next button in the Import & Export window that appears.

4. Select Outlook Data File (.pst) and hit Next button.

5. Browse for the PST file you wish to import. Under Options tab, select the action you want to proceed with i.e.

  • Replace duplicates with items imported
  • Allow duplicates to be created
  • Do not import duplicates
  • In the end, hit the Next button.

6. Enter the password if your Outlook Data File is password-protected, and proceed by clicking OK.

7. To import the contents of your PST file directly to Office 365 mailbox, select Import items into the same folder in: and specify the email account where you want to import files.If you don’t want to perform import function, simply choose Import items into the current folder and all your data will be imported to default folder.

8. Click Finish. Once finished, the progress window will go away.

NOTE: If you are trying to import your PST file in Office 365 mailbox, a message saying ‘trying to connect with

Office 365’ will appear. This usually happens when interruptions in Internet Connection is encountered even for a second’s time. Outlook will continue with the import function once your Internet Connection will be established again.

Bonus Tip: If you want to retrieve some specific emails or contacts from your PST file, open the Outlook Data File, and then, simply drag and drop the emails and contacts from PST to existing Outlook files in the navigation pane.

But if your PST file is corrupt, you need to repair it before importing to Outlook. For this, you can use a competent recovery tool like Kernel for Outlook PST Repair. It can restore encrypted and password-protected files as well.

How to migrate when there are only a few public folders in Exchange?

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2016

 

Small organizations may not find it worthwhile to follow the cumbersome batch migration process, as recommended by Microsoft, to migrate a few public folders from an older version of Exchange to Exchange 2013/2016. In that case, they can follow a quick fix method given here to accomplish the public folder migration. Its basic steps are:

  1. Export public folders to PST using MS Outlook
  2. Create a new public folder mailbox and public folder in the destination Exchange
  3. Configure the destination Exchange account in Outlook
  4. Import the PST file to the destination public folder

How to export public folders to PST using Outlook?

The export feature of Outlook helps to export the public folder to an Outlook Data File (PST). This option is available in the File menu. Before exporting, ensure that the account have the full permissions on the database holding the public folders.

How to create a new public folder in Exchange?

In Exchange 2013/2016, a new public folder can be created from Exchange admin center (EAC). First create a public folder mailbox, and then a public folder.

To create a public folder mailbox, go to public folders > public folder mailboxes and click Add+. Give a name for the public folder mailbox and save. Next, create a public folder. For this, go to public folder tab and click Add+. Give a name, verify the path for the public folder, and finally save. In the end, refresh the EAC to view this new public folder in the list.

How to assign public folder permissions to Exchange users?

Public folder permissions (Create items, Read items, Create subfolders, Edit own, Edit all, Folder owner, Folder contact, Folder visible, Delete own, and Delete all) are managed from the Exchange admin center (public folders > public folder). When a public folder is selected, the Manage option becomes visible under Folder permissions (on the right side).

What to do when there a large number of public folders?

When there are a large number of public folders for migration, it is better to follow the batch migration method < https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn912663%28v=exchg.160%29.aspx > as suggested by Microsoft. Another option is to use third-party tools like Kernel for Exchange Server that accomplish quick and easy migration. The advantages of this tool are:

  • Migrates public folders quickly and easily
  • Allows filtering of items for selective migration
  • Displays public folder content for preview
  • Is reliable and easy to use
  • Supports all versions of Exchange

Conclusion

It may not be feasible for small organizations to follow the complex batch migration process recommended by Microsoft to migrate a few Exchange public folders. So they can export the public folder to a PST from the old Exchange and import it to the new Exchange. However, if there are more public folders, they can try third-party tools like Kernel for Exchange Server.

Different ways to back up an Outlook PST file

Friday, November 11th, 2016

It’s not rare that incidents like system crashes cause data loss. If you are using your Outlook with an Exchange account, it’s not a cause of worry as Exchange data is not affected by the crash of your system. Otherwise—when you use Outlook independently on your machines—you may loss all your emails and other data after such unfortunate incidences. Keeping this in mind, many experts suggest backing up the Outlook data, especially when you have very critical information there in it. Here we will show you how you can back up Outlook PST file data easily.

Backup by copying the PST file

MS Outlook stores its data in Outlook Data File (PST). To back up the Outlook data including emails, you need to manually copy and paste the PST to the backup location—another drive in the same computer, a removable storage device, or another linked computer.

pstfilelocatoincompacting

You can note the location of the PST file from the Data Files tab of the Account Settings dialogue box (to open this, double-click Mail in Control Panel, and then click Data Files). Also, you can copy the location of the PST file from the Filename field in the Outlook Data File dialogue box (to open this, select the PST file and click Settings). You can use the Windows File Explorer to reach the PST location, from where you can copy the PST file to paste in the destination location.

Note: If the Outlook Data File is very large, compact it by clicking Compact Now (in the Outlook Data File window). Doing so will save the storage space.

Export specific Outlook folders/items to PST (to backup only the important items)

The Import and Export Wizard of MS Outlook helps to export folders and items from PST file to another one. The advantage is that you can select the folders and filter for the items you want to export. So it is the best option if you want to back up only the important data.

selectionfilter

Note: You can open the Import and Export Wizard from the File menu (click Open & Export > Import/Export in Outlook 2016/2013).

Save PST files to various destinations

Third-party tools like Kernel for PST Repair, even though not a backup application, helps you save PST files in various destinations like PST, MBOX, DBX, email servers, Office 365, web mails, and many other popular formats. It even repairs corrupt PST files and helps you recover the lost data. This tool has many advantages like:

  • You can search for the PST if you don’t know its location
  • Can save the file to PST and many other destinations
  • Can use filtering options to save only the required data
  • Can follow the saving procedure for all the versions of Outlook
  • Can recover data from corrupt PST files

Conclusion

As a precaution against email data loss, many Outlook users want to back up their PST files. They can do this simply by copying the PST file to a safe location. They can use the export to feature of Outlook if they want to back up only some specific folders/items. Also, they can use third-party tools like Kernel for Outlook PST Repair (though not a backup tool) to save the PST files in various destinations.

Have you overlooked your PST’s storage limit?

Tuesday, October 25th, 2016

 

When email communication started, the only thing that a user can do is sending and receiving plain text. It was more like leaving a note on someone’s desk.

However, with various other advances took place over the time, now it is also possible to send many other items along with text as attachments. Even the number of web email servers and respective clients have grown in numbers.

From all the email servers out there, the one that is most preferred by many of us is MS Outlook. It has all the attributes that a professional would require for smooth business communication. It supports the PST format for saving the mailbox items. It assists the user with the calendars, notes, journals, attachments and what not. With the proper utilization of MS Outlook, you can access almost everything that you may require for your work routine.

Moreover, it doesn’t mean all other email servers are underrated. It’s like I have used Outlook and has something to share with you all especially the Outlook users. We send and receive hundreds of mails without even realizing the fact that we have some storage limitations.

We are often recommended to maintain the backup, but all in vain. Sometimes our laziness, sometimes our work pressure, and sometimes just other hustles-bustles prevent us from taking any corrective measure for our crucial data items stored in mailbox.

We simply go on saving and saving lots of things (like media files, word documents, accounts excels and much more).

Though MS Outlook has now extended the storage limit of PST files from 2GB to 50GB, it is still a limited space for many including me. We keep piling up the files and turn our mailbox into repository. This process of creating repositories continue until we get encountered with an error message.

Here I am talking about the experience of error message that pops up on the screen (as shown in the image below) when we try to stuff our mailbox with more PST than its actual limit.

pstfilesize

It was quite unsettling for me. I immediately referred to the web for a DIY solution. From the most referred sources I found, it was the backup that people most recommend. It was left with no more an option in my case. Some other suggestions listed on web includes:

1- Creation of a new PST file onto which some of the items from original PST can be imported.

A. For the latest versions of Outlook (2010 and later)

  1. Hover mouse to the File option in menu.
  2. In the Open tab, click Import.
  3. Go to Import and Export Wizard, select Import from another file or program, and click on Next button.
  4. Select Outlook Data File (.pst) and then hit Next.
  5. Specify the path or file name for the .pst file you wish to import, or you can choose the file to be imported using Browse option.
    {Recommended Option: Under Options tab, click Do not import duplicates if you don’t want to import the files that are already stored in Outlook.)
  6. Hit Next.
  7. Specify the folder that you want to import. To retrieve every item of your PST file, select the Top of the Hierarchy.
    (Note: The top folder is default selection along with Include Subfolders that imports the folders within the selected folder.
  8. Click Finish.

B. For the earlier versions of Outlook (2007 and before)

  1. Open MS Outlook.
  2. Go to the File menu, click on Import and Export option. If this option is not available, hover the mouse to chevrons available at the bottom of the menu, and then go for Import and Export.
  3. Specify the file or program from where you want to import the file by clicking Import from another program or file and hit Next.
  4. Select Personal Folder File (.PST) and again hit Next.
  5. Provide the path or file name of the .pst file you wish to import, and hit Next.
  6. Specify the new location to import your file (select Top of the hierarchy to retrieve everything in your .pst file.
  7. Click Finish.

Hope this step-wise guide helps you to import your PST file appropriately. If import doesn’t seem to be a good option, then the next move is to free up disk space.

2- Deletion of the unnecessary mail items permanently to free some space. Steps you need to follow to minimize the size of .pst file are:

  1. Delete the items that are not required.
  2. Open the Folder List tab. ( click Folder List icon or press CTRL+6 available at the Navigation Pane’s bottom)
  3. In the Navigation view, right-click the folder ‘Deleted Items’ and hit ‘Empty Folder’ button.
  4. Hover to the File menu.
  5. Go to the Account Settings and click it.
  6. Under the Data Files tab, specify the data file that you wish to compact and click Settings.
  7. Select Compact Now.

3- Investment in a third party tool that facilitates splitting large PST files into smaller portions for regaining accessibility.

There are several other error messages that appear due to overloading of a PST file such as:

  1. xxxx.pst cannot be accessed – 0x80040116.
  2. Errors have been detected in the file xxxx.pst. Quit all mail-enabled applications, and then use the Inbox Repair Tool.
  3. The file could not be added to the folder. The action could not be completed.
  4. The file xxxx.pst has reached its maximum size. To reduce the amount of data in this file, select some items that you no longer need, then permanently (shift + del) delete them.
  5. Can’t copy the item.

Now that you are aware with more error messages that could possibly pop up on your system screen after filling up the storage limit, you can quickly identify the problem and take corrective steps right on time.

How SMTP queues can help in diagnosing and fixing Exchagne mail flow issues

Friday, October 7th, 2016

Any interruption in the Exchange mail flow and email performance can be equally disturbing as a corrupted Exchange database. In both the cases, the users find the difficulty to access or receive emails. When an email message has not reached to its targeted mailbox, then it may require some troubleshooting to repair the mail flow problems. Even though you have productively configured Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) for the desired Exchange Server, there are chances that you may still face mail flow issues. With the help of SMTP queues messages, the user can gain detailed insight of the email delivery and mail flow problems.

Understanding SMTP Queues

To efficiently deliver the emails internally as well as externally, the SMTP uses SMTP queues. In the process of email categorization and delivery, all the email passes though SMTP queues because of its powerful queuing engine. However, at any point in the process, if the delivery of email becomes unsuccessful, then then the email will get stuck within the queue where the issue has encountered. The SMTP queues are helpful in isolating the relevant causes of issues in mail flow.

HOW TO RESOLVE EXCHANGE MAIL FLOW ISSUES USING SMTP QUEUES?

The below mentioned are some of the common issues in mail flow, which can be tackled using SMTP queues. They are provided with descriptions to allow you to get insight of the issues occurring in mail flow and email performance.

1. Problems to Locate Email Message in SMTP queues: Prior to the task of resolving Exchange Server issues using the location of message, it is important to know location of that email message. To do this, the user can implement the below-mentioned process:

Exchange System Manager >> Administrative Groups >> your administrative group >> Servers >> the problematic server >> Queues

When you just choose Queues container, then the Exchange System Manager wizard will present all the contained SMTP queues of the server inside the interface’s details pane.

As shown in the above figure, the user will receive summary information about the number of emails available in the queues. This is a sufficient information giving hint about the problems occurring in SMTP queues.

It becomes simple to evaluate the real-time location of the messages, as shown in the figure (Queue 1out of 10). Another way of detecting the location of the email is to use the Find Message button. The find button includes ‘DSN messages pending submission’, which contains the delivery status notification.

Though, finding the exact email message inside the SMTP queues can be troublesome and tricky (increases with the number of queues), but it is an essential phase in the troubleshooting process of the mail flow.

2. Fixing Issues of Messages Awaiting Directory Lookup: This SMTP queue indicates the problem that the recipient has is not yet repaired in the MS Active Directory. The emails get amassed in this queue because the queuing engine fails to categorize the message that how to route the inbound messages in the server.

Although there are a few things to troubleshoot them:

  • When global catalog server has problem, then try to designate another domain controller.
  • When occurs any link failure between server and global catalog server, or simply global catalog server is gone offline, then try to restore the servers to fix the issues.

3. Handing Queue Issues of Messages Waiting to Be Routed: In this SMTP queue, the message is held till the targeted destination is not determined. Later it is transferred to the associated link queues. If emails get hung up, then it is often because of routing issues. Though, this issue can be little tricky, because it can be due to corrupted routing table, link failure or because of other reasons. Try to perform Traceroute for the destination domain of the message. This method will help you to determine whether the Exchange can communicate or not, and successfully route the packets to the targeted domain.

Reap Plethora of Benefits from Managing Outlook Attachments

Friday, April 29th, 2016

Getting connected in an IT-driven environment enhances the key productivity and communication metrics of the company. To achieve high-availability and utmost security in propagating email services, MS Outlook is definitely an intelligent choice. The MS Outlook services aren’t limited to emails itself as its powerful integration capability with Exchange Server commands over collaborative services such as contact management, blogging, calendaring, etc. MS Outlook email items are stored distinctly at standalone machines and Exchange Server in the form of PST and OST files. It has been seen that when the users and companies gets old, their standalone machines and email servers are occupied with large quantity of email items which needs to be managed.

One must note that the primary reason for any email corruption originates from overloaded mailboxes carrying large-sized attachments. When you look at the technicalities behind the Outlook storage facility, you will find that email headers and information occupies very less space, i.e. approximated to Kilobytes (KB), on hard drives, whereas the attachments dominates the storage spaces.

If you are using the MS Outlook email infrastructure, then managing the email attachments is always beneficial for you because:

  • It increases productivity by saving your crucial amount of time that would have spent in finding required email attachments.
  • It effectively enhances the server performance.
  • It is a significant factor for speedy Outlook operations.
  • It avoids the inception of error-friendly situations.

Why Users are Looking Out for Outlook Attachment Manager?

MS Outlook users are continuously introducing automated tasks for simplifying the accessibility of emails and handling crucial attachments. Similarly, users are more aware about the benefits reaped from an efficient Outlook attachment manager. Let us discuss what those benefits are.

Security is the Biggest Concern

With an adaptive Outlook attachment manager one can secure crucial email attachments by imposing the passwords on compressed attachments. There are some outstanding tools that automatically triggers the attachment retrieval process along with the provisions of making those attachments password protected by compressing them in the ZIP file.

Attachment Accessibility from Shared Location

It is the fact that fetching the same attachment from the shared location helps in reducing overheads on certain parameters like network bandwidth, storage spaces, etc. Extracting and storing the Outlook email attachments at the shared remote location not only increases the availability of information at all times but also reduces the need to store same information in multiple copies.

Overall Increased Performance

Removing unwanted or duplicate email attachments from Outlook mailboxes occupying megabytes or gigabytes of hard drive spaces definitely gears up the response of basic Outlook facilities such as search functionality, send/receive email process, etc. If you manage heavy Outlook email attachments efficiently, then you can avoid basic technical snags of Outlook related to the day-to-day functioning.

Structuring Outlook Attachments Gets Easier

One of the major reason for losing crucial amount of time in Outlook environment is the confusion of segregating and identifying the right email attachments at the right time. The intelligent Outlook attachment manager takes care of that by simply renaming, securing, and storing all email attachments at the desired place in concrete hierarchy. Now, users are more confident to work on the data they fetch from large pool of attachments.

If you are aware about the implications and effects of using Outlook attachment manager on your productivity, then getting a comprehensive and dynamic third-party software is the appreciative step. One of the underlying advantages of using the automated Outlook attachment manager is that it eliminates duplicity and avoids error-like situation by limiting the size of PST mailboxes.

Solution – Kernel for Attachment Management

Kernel for Attachment Management is the feature-rich platform to scan and manage Outlook attachments without affecting the other Outlook email items. The software incorporates unique compression feature, several dynamic filters, and advanced attachment restoration facility. It works proficiently with the MS Outlook 2013 and Windows 10 platforms.

Making choice between Outlook versions: On-premises VS Off- premises

Wednesday, February 3rd, 2016

Right after its launch, Office 365 has become the most popular Microsoft product which every IT pro look forward to explore. Microsoft has actually transformed the traditional desktop MS Office version in online version, appended it with other Microsoft products like Exchange Online, Lync Online, Outlook Web app and SharePoint Online, covered it with handy applications and named it as Office 365 suite. Office 365 provides all the essential services under same roof. It abolishes the conventional IT expenses made over maintenance of software and hardware, but still its pricey subscription always bothered users. With its growing reputation, Microsoft Outlook users also tried their hands on it, consequent to which mixed reviews were congregated that left Microsoft Outlook users in dilemma.

Which MS Outlook version should user adopt?

The adoption of MS Outlook version certainly depends on the requirements of the organization. The evaluation and choice of a particular version varies from organization to organization because every aspect of organizational activities will be considered during the decision making phase. From the perspective of organization’s growth and management, user can make three choices:

  1. Adopt on-premises Exchange environment (desktop version of MS Outlook)
  2. Adopt a cloud-based environment and choose off-premises version Office 365
  3. Adopt a hybrid version which is amalgamation of on-premises and off-premises version

On comparing all the three options, few major observations have been made:

  • The maintenance of hardware and software can cost a lot in case the user chooses on-premises option. Moreover, maintaining such IT infrastructure needs sophisticated technical skills. On subscribing Office 365, user can accumulate a lot of capital by reducing the expenditure done over hardware, software and administration of staff. Whereas, hybrid setup would be no help as it would incur cost over staff, software and hardware.
  • Security and maintaining upgrades periodically is solely user’s area of control under desktop setup. While, in Office 365, user does not have to set reminders for updates, as there is an automatic update feature available in this version. In hybrid version, reminders for only desktop application are required to be created.
  • Data migration in on-premises version follows an uncomplicated procedure. However, in Office 365 version, user may require appropriate third party tools like Kernel for Outlook PST, to migrate the complete MS Outlook data. Manual data exportation would be hectic and time consuming option in this version. While usage of inapt tool would may cause data loss. Therefore, usage of email recovery tool is the best option among all. In hybrid setup, the above stated conditions imply for both the setups.
  • With desktop setup user may not be able to access the files and emails from almost everywhere, wherein Office 365 subscription, user can access all the Office applications including Outlook files and emails from anywhere and at any time. The hybrid setup also allows user to access the data partially. Permission to access data can be customized as per user requirements in hybrid version.

The aforementioned points outline the pros and cons of each of the three options. User must thoroughly analyze all these points and compare them with his/her organizational requirements, before making the ultimate decision.

Now it is possible to view PST files without MS Outlook

Thursday, December 17th, 2015

MS Outlook plays a vital role in business communication. It is essentially incorporated in every user system to make the communication more feasible than ever. The other reason of its preference is user-friendly and needs least maintenance when compared to its rivals. Such reasons are quite sufficient to define the worthiness of MS Outlook.

To maintain the communication channel MS Outlook provides two file formats, namely: OST and PST. Of them OST files are used to store the offline changes that are made when user is not connected to the server, while PST files store your all emails, contacts, calendar entries etc. Therefore, it can be said that PST files act as safe houses for the user in case of emergency.

The only limitation with PST files are that to access them user has to install MS Outlook in the system or convert the target PST files to different format that can be accessed by the user. Due to such issue associated with PST files most users either install MS Outlook or look for converting media to get direct access to PST files. Since both options are either expensive or time consuming, it becomes mandatory for the user to look for some other tool that may be cost-effective and may not take long time to install.

Kernel Outlook PST Viewer

Kernel Outlook PST Viewer is a freely available tool designed to view PST files in complete absence of MS Outlook and any other converter media. It efficiently opens the fresh and damaged PST files and supports both ANSI and UNICODE format of PST files.

Whatever changes users make during offline mode get synchronized with the Exchange Server automatically when internet connectivity is back. OST files are highly useful for MS Outlook users working with unreliable or interrupted internet connection. The entire mailbox data of MS Outlook gets saved in OST files on Exchange Server. OST files, also known as Outlook Data Files, can be used to restore MS Outlook data during data loss or corruption.

To access OST files, MS Outlook must be connected to the Exchange Server. However, users might face a situation when there is no internet connectivity and they need to access OST files. As there is no manual way to access OST files without establishing a connection with Exchange Server, users require a professional OST Viewer tool. Kernel OST Viewer is one such easy to use tool that allows users to access OST files without Exchange Server.
