Outlook PST file format

One of the core aims of the project is to be able to take any bit of information, without having access to the application that created it, and present it on a timeline. Therefore, I'm happy to see that Microsoft are planning on opening up the format of Outlook .PST files. Being able to chart the sending of individual emails without resorting to third-party estimations of the file formats will increase the usefulness of any timeline significantly.
PCMag.com do however warn that "Microsoft has merely stated its intent to open the PST format, and not provided a timeframe in which it will do so."
