Just a few notes:
- For the future, read http://www.microsoft.com/learning/books/troubleshooting/solutions/292.asp
- If you don't like losing all of the contents of your Outlook database in case of unexpected problems, consider a way to do a regular BACKUP of it (burn to DVD for example).
- Consider splitting your pst-file into multiple (socalled 'personal folders') and see what archiving can do. http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=195782 is an article about Outlook 2000.
For your current problem, see if the Microsoft program pst2GB mentioned in http://www.webproworld.com/viewtopic.php?t=36809 is a solution. But it seems inevatible you'll lose some of your mails.
It seems Outlook 2003 supports .pst-files > 2 Gb. But I wouldn't advise to have such big files when there are excellent alternatives, unless absolutely necessary.
Hope this helps.
I let my Outlook content exceed the limit and it shut down. My .pst file is there but I can't reload it because it is to large. Does anyone know a way to access .pst files and delete some content? Thanks.
