I have a backup of some emails (at least I hope I do) in an archive.PST file.

I don't really want to install MS Outlook at all. I have zero need for it.

1. Is there any type of FREE viewer/utility that people can recommend that will allow me to open to the archive.PST file, view the emails, and selectively print off which ones I need?

2. Does the archive.PST file contain the email contacts from the MS Outlook address book, I'm not sure exactly what is contained in an archive.pst file.

This file is from either from a Win7 machine or Win XP (I don't recall), and I believe MS Outlook 2013.

Thanks in advance
