  • Firstly, OST file can only be opened in the context of the profile used to create them. There are some utilities that do that, but neither Outlook nor Redemption will let you open standalone OST files.

    Secondly, what does it have to do with accessing Safe Senders list?

  • Some or most of that information is stored in a hidden item in the Inbox with a Subject of "Junk E-mail Rule".

  • In case of Exchange store, the list is stored (as Ken mentioned) in a hidden rule message in the Inbox.

    In case of PST, the data is in the profile section.

    Redemption exposes safe senders through the RDOJunkMailOptions object, exposed both on the session (RDOSession.JunkMailOptions) and mailbox (RDOExchangeMailboxStore.JunkMailOptions).

  • Thank you Dmitry and Ken.

    So does it mean that this is stored in Exchange server and not cached in the local machine. Please confirm.

  • With Exchange it's stored in a hidden item in the Inbox with a Subject of "Junk E-mail Rule". It is cached locally in an OST file if cached mode is used, it's stored in the mailbox. If online mode is used it's only in the mailbox on the server.

  • It is duplicated in the registry in a profile section (stored in the registry). As of Outlook 2010, each mail account gets its own junk options.

    Older versions use the profile section with GUID {00020D0A-0000-0000-C000-000000000046} to store the data.

  • I am not sure why you would need to use the Recovery Toolbox in your case...

  • Are you trying to read a standalone OST created on a different machine or retrieve the Safe Senders list?
