After I accidently deleted my Outlook profile while trying to add a new MAPI e-mail address, my .pst/.ost and other data files seem to be scattered throughout my Outlook Data File list. I have about 25 .pst files, 14 ost files where only 25% of that existed before. I have been archiving every 7 days and using an external HD backup daily but it seems like I (actually was a not so competent company IT Help Desk person) have overwritten the existing profile which sent my data to the four winds. Is there someway to bring all the data file together so the e-mail addresses know what files they need to reconstitute what I had before?

Email account is nothing to do with the pst\ost.

No matter which pst\ost is default will pull data from the corresponding email address.

1st which email account did you delete? pop\exchange\mapi...

Open an blank new profile> open all pst files in it and check if you can find data.

I need to find the incoming server and outgoing server information to be input in order to do that so I will find out what I am supposed to use for an msn.com e-mail account and try this and let you know. thanks

I had already accomplished that without success. I still have e-mails, e-mails in e-mail folders, calendar data and Contact data scattered throughout my hard drive. for example, I have calendar appointments scattered across three different calendars instead of just one as before. My CONTACTS information seems to be old archived information from about mid June and before but does not include anything I have added in the last two months. Those archived CONTACTS information is also in three separate CONTACTs list instead of just one. I have two msn.com accounts now and some e-mails go to one INBOX and some e-mails show up in the other INBOX although all e-mails would have been sent to myxxxxxx@msn.com address.

I'm starting to believe that not even the experts at Microsoft could figure out this one. Four corporate IT specialists have looked at this problem already and all are surprised to see the mess. The computer goes to the shop on Wednesday and I'll have to live with the consequences.

thanks for the help
