Opening up Outlook .pst files

Microsoft has announced two open source solutions for accessing Outlook .pst files. Read the press release here: http://www.microsoft.com/presspass/press/2010/may10/05-24PSTToolsPR.mspx

I’ve been able to find the following on Codeplex:

PSTViewTool : http://pstviewtool.codeplex.com/

PST SDK: http://pstsdk.codeplex.com/  [Thanks to Greg!]

Also, doing a search for Outlook on CodePlex offers a lot of solutions for looking at Outlook data or integrating with Outlook: http://www.codeplex.com/site/search?query=outlook

Update: Added the PST SDK.

I often work with pst files. But several days ago I noticed an unusual problem in my MS Outlook. Or more exactly all my emails were lost. I lost my head. But unexpectedly my friend phoned me and told about many interesting things, one of them was - opening .pst files. I tried it and was glad, because the program solved my issue fast and easy as far as I remembered. Moreover I saw the application converted my mailbox to separate files or to a file of PST format.
