A user that was working for my company has left and I am trying to get some of the emails on his hard drive. I noticed that he has an outlook.bak file.  Can someone tell me how to open this file or if I can retrieve emails from the file?  I tried to rename the file to .pst but that did not work.

Outlook won't generate you a BAK file and I'd suggest that PST renaming route if I encountered it. The other option is that it's an OST file but you either have to pray that you haven't deleted the persons' mailbox and account or if you have, you need to get an OST to PST conversion tool (google as there are several of them around).

All your above queries are get solved OST Recovery which is freeware you do not require to spend even a single bug on it to open OST File.
