Personal Store (PST) without Outlook

Personal Store (PST) without Outlook

  • Comments 1

Is there a way to access Personal Store (PST) wihtout having Outlook installed?
Reason: Take out the Outlook dependency from PST ;-)

Further to SGRIFFIN'S blog:

Exchange 2007 onwards, MAPI isn't included on the box and available as separate download:

The MSPST32.DLL shipped in this ExchangeMapiCdo download is the one of Exchange, that doesn't provide support for Unicode.

So, there is no way to access Unicode PSTs other than installing Outlook.

Long live Outlook!
