eric,
    Where did the user store the ost? by default they are located in
C:\Documents and Settings\%username%\Local Settings\Application
Data\Microsoft\Outlook\outlook.ost. These are not stored in the priv.edb.

Never heard of OST files. Native Outlook file format is PST files, is this
what you meant? These are not saved in any special way, they're just files
on the disk. If you did indeed delete his old profile I would suggest you
lock down that hard drive ASAP. Get it out of that machine and put in
another and run some file recovery utilities on it. Don't let the space get
overwritten by new files or the old files are gone for good.

I have a user that was part of another domain and recently came into ours.
On the old domain, he used OST files.  When he came in, I added him to the
domain and created a new email profile to the server.  Not knowing he had
the OST files, I deleted the old profile.  Then come to find out he needs
the info that was stored in the OST files.  He is running Outlook 2000.  Any
suggestions on how to extract the data?
