E-mail's from PST to Exchange server
Posted on 2004-09-01
My boss recently had to work from home, and we installed Outlook 2003 which connects to our Exchange server 2000. It's set to work in cached mode.
Now he has received an error message when trying to move items that says "Can't move the items. The file C:\Documents and Settings\percyc\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook\outlook.ost has reached its maximum size (which is indeed almost 2 Gig and would cause the error). I went and looked, and his 'Deliver To' says Personal File folder, which I'm thinking it shouldn't. With all the email he gets, it filled up quick.
I can change the delivery to Mailbox, and that should allow the messages to stay on the server, right? Is the file for the 'cache copy' done automatically - I'm not going to be breaking that, right?
What about all of the e-mails that have been delivered into his PST? Is there an easy way to get those back to him mailbox so he can see them from his work pc also? Or would it be better to move his .PST back to a network drive, and if so, could he still open it from home using Outlook 2003?
