We can access emails, files, journals, reminders, appointments in MS outlook without any internet connection. The technology behind this is OST files. It allows us to use all the mail data without having any internet connections. We can also make changes in our MS outlook when our computer is offline. Later, when your computer gets connected with the Exchange server, then the stored changes and data in the form of OST file will be converted into PST.
It might happen that your MS office does not function as it has to be. If you are facing any errors or dysfunctional problems then it may be because the OST files are unable to synchronize with the exchange server.
