As we know Outlook is a widely used email client developed by Microsoft Corporation. Outlook comes with many advanced features that make the user’s tasks very easy and simple. But due to many PST files, it is difficult to maintain them all at one time.

Users Query:-

I have total four PST files but I want to merge all of them in one. Please tell me how I can combine

I can’t handle multiple mailboxes at the same time. Is any option to combine all of them into a single PST file?

Is any trick to merge multiple PST file into a PST file?  If yes please inform me.
