I have a problem in adding an Outlook data file in Account Setting. The error message says "The file is set to read-only Try again with a different file name"

Is the file read only? Folder read only? Any errors in the event logs that might help obtain an answer? –  Dave M Apr 24 '12 at 12:09
This may be a permissions error, which can happen when copying or moving an Outlook PST from another location. –  user3463 Apr 24 '12 at 17:25
