I had a hard drive failure & had my hard drive recovered.
I have found the PST file that was sent back to me & have tried to upload to
2003 Outlook. The file does end in .pst The file is 2.3 meg

I keep receiving a message: This is not a PST file.

Does anyone know what I can do?

I need the email info.

What do you mean by "tried to UPLOAD to 2003"?
Describe EXACTLY what you are doing, and where this pst file is located.

Asking a question?
Please tell us the version of the application you are asking about,
your OS, Service Pack level
and the FULL contents of any error message(s)

Chances are, then, that whatever method you used to move thie PST around has
damaged it so it is useless. A professional recovery tool might be able to
help. Google "PST recovery" for assistance in finding repair tools.

If the filename does not end with .pst what does it end with?

Why don't you use some PST recovery tools for your .pst file i think
your file must be corrupted . You need some good PST recovery software
for your pst file like stellar phoenix , i had used this utility in
past and it worked great for me. I hope it may help you .

Cheers..

Scanpst.exe is already available on the existing computer and will not cost
the OP anything, I would recommend they try this method first.

http://www.howto-outlook.com/faq/aboutpst.htm

Above link contains instructions on repairing the PST file.
