    Hi,
    You can implement the different procedures to export Exchange Server Offline OST mailbox into Outlook.
    Technique 1:
    1. Start Outlook. Make sure you can access all the contents in the OST file to be converted.
    2. Create a new PST file.
    3. Copy all OST file and its contents to be converted.
    4. Go back to the new PST file, then paste all the contents into the PST file
    This procedure will do the OST to PST Conversion!
    Technique 2:
    If you have access to the Exchange server containing the account data for the OST file, then you can use Export-Mailbox command to export the data into a PST file.
    1. Start Outlook and go through File option in the top left corner
    2. Choose Open & Export >Import/Export.
    3. Choose Export to a file.
    4. Hit Outlook Data File (.pst), and then click Next.
    5. Make sure that the Include subfolders check box is selected. And click "Next".
    6. Hit the Browse to select where to save the Outlook Data File (.pst) and click "Finish".
    Technique 3:
    You can also use Free Exchange OST to PST Conversion solution to export Exchange mailbox data to Outlook PST format.
    1. This solution is available in its free trial run
    2. Outlook or Exchange connectivity is not required
    3. Works in case of data corruption and repair Outlook data file

    Hi,RonZ1,

    There are several methods to convert OST file to PST file.

    First, Microsoft does not provide an official tool to do the conversion. However, if you can access the contents of the OST file in your Outlook, then you can perform the conversion manually, as follows:

    1. Start Outlook. Make sure you can access all the contents in the OST file to be converted.
    2. Create a new PST file.
    3. Go to the OST file, select and copy all the contents to be converted with your mouse.
    4. Go back to the new PST file, then paste all the contents into the PST file

    That will do the ost 2 pst conversion.

    You can also perform the conversion by exporting the contents of OST file to PST file by following the instructions at:

    Second, if you can access the Exchange server containing the account data for the OST file, then you can use Export-Mailbox command to export the data into a PST file, similar to convert your OST file into a PST file. Below is the article about doing that:

    Third, you can try a free OST to PST converter via Outlook VBA . Below is the article about doing that:
