    Hi Jim,

    I knew of that technique because a while back, my Outlook

    "decided on its own" that one of my PST files was password

    protected.

    It worked for me, and I am glad it worked for you.

    All the best,

    How to remove "PST" Password? (Outlook 2007)

    I just followed the steps to ad a password to my Outlook 2007 data file (pst

    file). I typed the pasword twice as requested, and it was accepted.

    Now, the very FIRST time I try to load Outlook again, it ask for the

    password (of course) . . . . but does NOT ACCEPT MY PASSWORD (!)

    What kind of !#$!#? is this?

    How can I get rid of the "pst" password, so I can get to my data?

    The instructions for setting up the password said words-to-the-effect that

    "This is not very secure; just an informal protection among people you trust

    like family, etc."

    Well, how can I REMOVE the password on my own "pst" file?

    (I'll never do this again!) Cripes.

    No, the caps are not on.

    It is asking for the "pst" password . . . the one I just created!

    But it does not accept it.

    Howdy,

    You might want to check this:

    http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/pst_password.html

    It will give you the password.

    Then, either you can eliminate its use, or you will have

    some important diagnostic information.

    All the best,

    Kenneth
