  • Hi Wolfvain,

    We don't explicitly document "minimum requirements" per se but if you follow the [MS-PST] specification's MUST, SHOULD, etc... and behavior notes, then you will find that your emitted file format will be consumed successfully by the products listed in the Appendix B: Product Behavior. In this case (and at this time), Outlook 2003-2019 on Windows. [MS-PST] only provides the specification from Outlook's perspective, not 3rd party requirements.

    If you find that one of these product versions listed is not behaving according to the details in [MS-PST], please bring this to our attention and we will work with you to correct or clarify the behavior.

    Best regards,
