Notes:
  • The Unsend and Status buttons are AOL features, and are not available when you use Outlook to view your AOL e-mail account.
  • The Report Spam button is an AOL feature, and it is not available when you use Outlook to view your AOL e-mail account. To report messages as junk e-mail, move the messages to your AOL Spam folder.
  • AOL IMAP e-mail servers only allow folders to be created in the AOL Saved folder. Any e-mail messages moved to the Saved folder or any folder you create in the Saved folder appear on AOL in the Saved on AOL folder.
  • You cannot move e-mail messages to the Inbox or Sent Items folders. Only the AOL IMAP e-mail server can add e-mail messages to these folders.
  • In Outlook, deleted e-mail messages remain in the folder where you delete the e-mail message and are marked with a strikethrough line. On AOL, e-mail messages you delete are saved in the Recently Deleted folder, which AOL empties nightly. To remove deleted e-mail messages from Outlook and AOL immediately, on the Edit menu, click Purge Deleted Messages.
  • You can't access the VOICEMAIL folder unless you subscribe to the AOL Voicemail premium service.

For work with outlook files and possible more than recommend use-.pst repair utility,program has free status as far as I know,utility extract data from corrupted files with *.pst or *.ost extension,will be prompted to choose a file to be repaired, it may be files in *.ost or *.pst format,tool will decrypt the input file and attempt to extract all data, that is located inside,extract data safely, even if your *.ost file is infected, however, antivirus software should be installed on your PC,save recovered data, first of all, you can convert it to a *.pst file, that can be opened by any email client, compatible with Microsoft Outlook,also extract a great number of files in *.eml,*.vcf and *.txt formats,may help us to improve these Microsoft Outlook pst repair tools.

As a matter of fact when I had this problems I used next software-password lost for microsoft outlook data file,tool to my mind has many good resources and has free status as far as I know,utility recover forgotten or lost passwords,will be recovered and you get access to your mailbox, recover lost password Outlook, when lost password Outlook 2002,recover lost saved password Outlook before use for recovering lost Outlook password, when lost password in outlook 2003,will work with all versions of Microsoft Windows, starting from Windows 98, what about Microsoft Office package, it is supported from Microsoft Office 97,allows to guess your Microsoft Outlook lost password in less than several seconds, now you can make sure, that Microsoft Outlook has a very weak protection and some security measures are really necessary.

The points mentioned in your page are great. Diskdoctors provides reliable and awesome pst recovery
you should try it by downloading a tryout release. A high-quality software has to be the priority for the person, becasue if it doesnt retrieve data right away then its of no use in any way. So pick up a good program like Disk Doctors recovery software.
