How to Close .PST File RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    In the process of moving from one computer to another, I ended up with multiple .PST files.  Reminders are not working because they are in a different .PST than the emails are in.

    I  cannot merge .PST files because I cannot close the open .PST file/cannot find instructions for closing a 2007 .PST file.

    Would appreciate your suggestions in this regard.

    Thank you,

    Cheri Love

  • Hi Cheri,

    Which version of Microsoft Outlook are you using currently? 

    Do you mean you want to close some additional PST files in Outlook? If this is the case, you can do this via right clicking the PST file in the left-side pane of Outlook and then click Close "PST file name".

    If I've misunderstood something, please feel free to let me know.
