Assuming you are working in POP3,
Follow this link in order to configure your outlook PST size limits:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/832925/

If your working in IMAP or in POP3 - headers only you will have to choose one of 3 options:
1. Delete some old messages in order to make room for new ones
2. Export old messages to a PST archive
3. Conntact your E-Mail supplier and upgrade your storage

I have checked up the registry . there is no such entry in my registry.My pst file size is 1.82GB
Actually it is old version pst file  attached to msoffice 2007.

I have a local mdaemon mail server which periodically talks to my isp mail server and downloads msgs
i have configured outlook 2007 for pop3 service which talks to my local mail server and downloads the messages.

pls advise me the solution

Hello venkataramanaiahsr,

You are using an old format PST file that has a 2 GB storage limit.  You need to create new PST file with Outlook 2007 limit
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/829971

Then drag all the emails and contacts addresses to the new PST file.
