I did a test on this yesterday for Eric with another PST.  If I understand
him correctly, he created a new mailbox on a different domain.  The OST will
only open (based on standard security for OST files)for the original user.
To move an OST to a new user, it must be converted to a PST file first.
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;195793 gives more
information on this.  To see if this was correct, I did some testing myself.


I had an OST file for an ex-employee and tried to add it to a new mailbox
that I created (under the ex-employees name on a different server in a
different domain - to mirror his situation) and the OST file gives an error
stating that the mailbox does not have permissions to open the file.  Does
anyone have any information on how to bypass this?

        The OST files are just like PST (personal folders)they are a file
that grows up as users save stuff to them, Do a search or find for *.ost
once you know the location,  using the control Panel "Mail" icon you can add
it to the profile.

the OST file resides in the local machine, is not deleted when you delete 
the profile, you can setup outlook 2000 to use offline folder and point to 
the correct file, .ost extension.
