New Toshiba laptop purchased that has Windows 7 installed as operating system. Installed our Office 2003 Standard Edition and all was well.
After a few days of getting used to new computer we switched ISP's from a local Wi-Fi company to the Verizon MiFi "hotspot". In the process of doing that we set up a Hotmail account and used Outlook Connector to splice Outlook 2003 and Hotmail so that we could continue to do mail using Outlook.
The system stopped downloading e-mail and it appears to be because it's going to the .ost file and not the .pst data file. This computer has never been on an Exchange Server so I do not understand how the .ost data file got established in the first place.
That's not to say that I did not inadvertently flip a switch during the process that made it think we wanted an .ost data file.
What can I do to consolidate the old .pst file and the new .ost file and get e-mail to download to Outlook?
