    I'm trying to import my old PST file (all 400megs) into my
    new Outlook 2000 so I can recover my old saved emails,
    etc, but I get, "File access denied. You do not have the
    permission required to access this file..."
    ANY IDEAS? thnx, b

    try copying the file to a FAT32 partition or burning it to
    a CD, anything that isn't formatted in NTFS, so that the
    file will lose its DACL(security permissions). OR.. enter
    the properties/security tab, and add the "everyone" group
    to the list of users, and give everybody "full control".

    Cheers

  3. When I had this problem I just clicked on blank password
    and it loaded fine, give it a go, maybe i was lucky.

    To resolve this issue, just remove the Read Only file property. To do this, right-click the file, click Properties, click to clear the Read Only check box, and then click OK. The Import process should now finish successfully.
