I use Outlook at work and every now and then i get this message "Inbox too big...delete some files...blah balah blah..."

Now the way i have set up my outlook i usually move emails to relevant folders....

How can i maintain my folder structure and keep adding folders like i do right now and still somehow archive all this information on to my computer so i dont get this annoying messsage...

Thanks,
KM

you could look at
http://www.computertim.com/howto/article.php?topic=outlook&idn=77
http://www.thenakedpc.com/articles/v03/04/0304-03.html

it basically comes down to using the posibillity of using more then one pst at the time and have some archive.pst and archive1.pst etc... available for the older mails that you can reopen in outlook when needed

if you read the article on archiving you will see it's in your own hands

you can put on automatic archiving and it will be placed in a file called archive.pst, you can read them again when opening the file archive.pst in outlook again

but can't i just download the messages onto my computer...i don't wanna have to open an archive file just to see email messages...

like if you get email from POP3 it lets you get messages from the server and store it onto your computer...is it not possible in a network environment??
