can one convert a .csv file to a .pst file in Outlook 7?

I exported all my old emails in my Personal folders to Office Live Workspace. 
They savced out in csv form, and show up in Office Live Workspace in a 
document format.  But now when I save them back to the desktop, they save in 
csv form, and I can's seem to figure out how to get them back in my Outlook 7 
in pst file form, so they look like email.  I had three years worth of old 
email that I exported to Office Live Workspace thinking I could just import 
them back to my Outlook, after having my computer wiped.  Now I can't seem to 
get them back.

Did you try using the File, Import menu?

How did you wipe the computer? It may still be possible to undo that damage.

I run a data recovery company and there are specific steps we can run.

You can re-import mail from a CSV, but it will not have the right headers.

If and when you get this sorted, WHY OH WHY did you do that? Do you EXPORT 
Word files? No. You just SAVE them.
That's all you had to do - SAVE your pst (personal folders file) with 
Outlook closed.

See here on the correct way to backup and restore Outlook data for future 
reference.....

How to backup and restore Outlook

http://www.howto-outlook.com/howto/backupandrestore.htm
http://www.slipstick.com/config/backup.htm
http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/assistance/HA010771141033.aspx

There is out-dated information on some of these pages, specifically with 
regard to Outlook 2003 and 2007.

The main points to note:
1. Do NOT use the import/export function to move Outlook data from one 
version to another - all you need to do is to copy the pst file, with 
Outlook closed.

2. Do NOT paste the copied pst file into the default location - paste into 
(for example) your Documents folder and then do File-Open-Outlook Data File 
within Outlook.
