    As I left my previous employer, the IT manager exported my contacts into a .pst file. I used Outlook 2003 at work. When I go to import the file at home (also OL '03), it comes in as a personal folder (email folder?) and is empty. The file itself is ~250k so I know it's not empty. How can I import my contacts into Outlook on my home computer?

    Welcome to the forum.

    256k is an empty pst file. If it was larger I would tell you to click on "contacts" because you are in your "mailbox" and cannot see contacts within there.
