Outlook Data File
I had to reformat my computer, but before I did I recovered a file Important Docs.pst from Outlook, it was where I kept all my e-mails that I need to save. I re-installed Outlook, and now when I attemp to open the file it asks me for a password, but I never had a password on the file, does anyone know how to buy-pass the password or if Outlook uses a default password or something.

There are various softwares that can do it - search google with something like 'outlook password recovery'. I have used them before and they do work unless your file is actually just corrupted, the ones I have tried I think were the Passware one and Advanced Office XP Password Recovery. Will cost you money but that may be worth it.
