If your computer doesn’t have Microsoft Outlook installed how do you open and view an Outlook PST file? Sometimes we face this issue when we receive an important email with a PST file as attachments and the computer doesn’t have Microsoft Outlook installed.
.pst (Personal Storage Table) is the file format used by Microsoft products to store copies of messages, calendar events, and other similar items. Microsoft Outlook is one of the most popular e-mail applications that also include a calendar, task manager, contact manager, notes, journal etc.
There are many tools both freeware and shareware available to convert .pst to other formats or to upload to other online e-mails services like Gmail. But if you want to open a PST file in your machine which doesn’t have Outlook installed is not an easy task. Kernel Outlook PST Viewer is a nice free tool which helps you to open and view .pst files.
