I suppose you don't have Exchange server...if you did, you would have a MUCH
easier time of this. I really don't like using PST files for corporate
e-mail - too fragile, difficult to administer/back up, etc..and no sharing
That said: Offline Files doesn't work on PST files (and other types) by
default - and as I don't like Offline Files anyway, I'd suggest checking out
the shareware app at www.centered.com. They have a 30 day eval you can check
Note: Make sure all relevant apps are closed when you sync.
