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.

Subject: [exchangelist] OST files

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?
