One day, he had problems downloading his e-mail and received multiple copies of all of the e-mails, including headers for e-mails larger than 124 K. We solved the problem and he was able to receive his e-mails normally.
Now, he has multiple headers for e-mails that were downloaded and he cannot delete them because they do not exist on the server anymore. How can I remove these headers?
Another approach is to use a hex editor, which is a tool for editing raw files. Remove a single byte from the middle of the .PST file. Be careful not to delete crucial data, and then run Scanpst.
