.pst file has a limit of 2Gb for older version of Outlook (upto 2003) whilst 2003 has a limit of 20gb.

What do you mean by convert? Do you mean upgrading your Outlook 2002 to 2003?

Hello vroldaojr,

Create a new PST file in Outlook 2003 format.

Then open the new PST as Personal Folder. Drag all the old emails and contacts addresses to the new PST file.
