    I'm trying to access .pst files that I saved to a CD from a former computer
    on the same server when
    I try to import them Outlook says they are not accessable. Does anyone have
    a solution?

    If you are using Outlook (and not Windows Mail), copy the .pst file to your
    vista computer, and in Outlook, open the file (don't import).

  3. ....and, since you saved these .PST files to a CD, the very first thing you
    need to do after copying them to your HD is to set them back to READ/WRITE
    again. Writing files to read only media (a CD) automatically marks them
    READ ONLY and Outlook won't even acknowledge they exist when they're set
    this way.
