Opening an old Outlook 2010 Data File


How to open an Outlook 2010 Data File that was closed previously? I need to read an old email stored in that data file.



Opening an old Outlook Data File (.pst) in Outlook 2010 is very easy:

1. Run Outlook and click "File > Open > Outlook Data Files..." in the menu. The "Open Outlook Data File" dialog box shows up.

2. Locate the folder where the data file is located on the hard disk or external drive.

3. Double-click on the data file name to open it.

4. Enter the password of the data file, if it is password protected.

The picture below shows the file open menu in Outlook 2010:
