  • No, the subject doesn't say it all. A pst-file isn't tied to an email address. You can open it directly via;
    File-> Open & Export-> Open Outlook Data File

    Importing is also possible;
    File-> Open & Export-> Import/Export

  • Hi brisbanebob8 ,

    Do you mean that you want to use the PST file you created from another email account before?

    If so, as Roady mentioned above, a pst-file isn't tied to an email address. You could directly open it in Outlook desktop client or import it to the email account you want.
    Open and close Outlook Data Files (.pst)
    Import email, contacts, and calendar from an Outlook .pst file

    If this is not your case, please provide me with more information related your issue for further research.
