MS Outlook is a proprietary email client that’s used broadly by individuals, businesses and numerous other entities due to its ease of use and the email management options it grants. Users are also able to manage their calendars, notes, appointments and other important functions. MS Outlook is generally highly appreciated due to its ability to carry out other diverse functions offline.
Many people have wondered why MS Outlook has become so famous with small, medium and multinational companies alike. Granted, a closer look at other email clients reveals that MS Outlook is quite effective, properly updated by the original developer, Microsoft Inc., and allows for a wide array of options that the user can enjoy in email management. Another important factor that has contributed immensely to its extensive acceptance is it’s beefed up security.
Why would a company or any other entity forego the many open source applications available for MS Outlook? One issue that has been raised by many users against open source applications is their vulnerability to hacks. Once highly trained hackers go through the source code, they are able to perceive some loopholes and eventually gain unauthorized access to user emails and other sensitive information stored in the email files.
On the contrary, MS Outlook source code is kept secret and only known by the original developer. The company doesn’t share the kind of security used, the code structure or other information that might compromise the security of the data or information stored by users.
Is MS Outlook therefore foolproof? Sadly not! This mail client also has its pitfalls, some of which become very costly to the user. Since you can store loads of information and create some administrative functions in MS Outlook, when an issue arises and the information is lost, the effects could be adverse.
MS Outlook stores files in .pst format. And these can be corrupted or lost through malicious program invasions, damaged partitions, formatted disks and so on.
MS Outlook Recovery Options
For minimally damaged .pst files, MS Outlook has provided Scanpst.exe as an inbuilt solution. There are also some other minor pst repair tools that only deal with mailboxes or some individuals MS Outlook components.
However, one of the main fears is that some .pst file corruption effects are far reaching; being able to reach diverse components thus making it impossible for component specific applications to repair all of them. Are there some elaborate solutions? If yes, are these freely available or users have to buy them? How effective are they and what solutions do they offer?
