The OST will only open with the original mailbox that it was setup with.  If
you have access to that other domain you will have to give him access to his
mail on that other domain - setup Offline files and point it to the OST file
that you have (it must be his original mailbox) - follow the directions at
the link below.  Other than that, I do not know if there is a way around
these steps.

The profile that was deleted with just the Outlook profile.  I have a copy
of the OST and associated files.  I'm just not sure how I can open the them
and so the data can be exported.

I assume that you deleted the user profile off of his machine (or are you
speaking of the outlook profile).  Could the OST files have been placed in a
seperate location than under his profile.  As a rule, I always put Outlook
files in a folder on the root in the event a profile is corrupted I still
have access to the PST, OST and any other files used in Outlook.  Do a
search for the OST files and see what happens.  If you have no luck, I would
recommend trying a recovery utility through dos to recover the files. 
 
If you only recreated his Outlook profile, you should be able to find the
OST file under his User profile in NT/XP/2000 where it is created as a
default.

OST..offline storage files it's the files which are used when a laptop is
offline to a user can read/send email while on the travel.  Then when back
in the office they sync up with the server.

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?
