I tried to log on to Outlook today and got the following message'

<Unable to expand the folder. The set of folders could not be opened.
The Exchange Server has detected that hyou are using an old copy of your OST
file. Please delete your OST file and create a new one from the server.>

I found the OUTLOOK.OST file with current time stamp, renamed it to
OUTLOOK.SAV, reloaded OUTLOOK with the same error.

Whats the recovery from this error?

Thanks in Advance

did you have another ost it was using instead? That error usually happens
when the ost is much older than 'current time stamp'.
