I upgraded a user at my company to Outlook 2003 from Outlook 97.  Now she is being flooded with over 10K old emails.  I'm guessing it's a cache setting somewhere, but I'm new to Outlook and can't find it.  

Any ideas?

Thanks.

Looks to me as an issue with old ost corruption. Please have her uninstall Outlook completely and re-install Outlook at a separate location on same drive.

That should do the magic.

There is a flag on Outlook client that indicates to leave message on exchange server.  When we upgraded it downloaded the emails from the server to the client again.  In this case the box was about 1.5gig so it was slow and had the apperance of flooding.  Once it downloaded we were fine.  We leave that flag checked so our users can use OWA on the road.

I do not understand this part - why would exchange server resend the emails already sent earlier - doesnt make sense. Emails once downloaded should not be resend.
