    My friend uses msn for email and was accessing it via the web. He wanted to
    switch to access it via Outlook and apparently tried some different ways,
    that resulted in creating 2 pst files ("personal" and one that seems to have
    his msn email name.)

    But I also noticed an older file with an "msnpst" extension. I don't think
    that is being used. So what is that? Can he delete it?

    Thanks.

  2. If its not being used it can be deleted - you can go by the file date.
