Go to folder view
view-> folder
right click on outlook today or "username" mailbox
go to properties, the button on the right hand side says folder size... click and enjoy

Hope this helps

When I choose View- Folder List and the right click on Mailbox - Username and choose properties there is no button that says folder size. All I see are three tabsheets with General - Permissions - Synchronization.

So what you propose is not good to me .

thanks anyway

When you right click on MailBox Username on the General tab there should be a button that says folder size.  If you click that it should tell you.

Manage projects of all sizes how you want. Great for personal to-do lists, project milestones, team priorities and launch plans.
- Combine task lists, docs, spreadsheets, and chat in one
- View and edit from mobile/offline
- Cut down on emails

Well, Kind4me wasn't totaly wrong... that works for Outlook 2000 (possibly 98 too, but I don't have a copy of that) There's no folder size button in Outlook 97 though. If I find a way to do it, I'll post it.

Well, as scroghan wrote, there is no such button in the general tab in  Outlook 97. thanks for confirming and possibly looking for the answer.

Also upgrading to 98 or 2000 is not an option because this is a corporate product which is still being used by over 2000 employees and we have strict software policies.

Well, it's not directly in outlook, and I've never used it, but give this a shot... from Technet:

Install the StorStat utility from your Outlook or Office CD. This utility analyzes your server store (or any .pst or .ost file) and gives you complete statistics, including the number of items and folders and the size of your mail store.
To install the StorStat utility:
1. Copy the entire StorStat folder from the Outlook or Office CD to your hard disk.
2. Quit Outlook.
3. Click Start, and then click Run.
4. In the Open box, type: c:\storstat\storstat.exe_/email name

Hopefully that'll work for you...

It's not really what I hoped for. What I wanted is to view directly next to your mailbox what size it is.

But thanks anyway
