I have thousands of emails in a few computers using Office 2003 and Office 2007.  Although I have been invited by the program to archive, I haven't done so.  I use Outlook not on a corprate system but to view email coming from my website host's server as POP3 email.  Am I at risk that the Outlook data file will ultimately freeze up and be non-recoverable when it hits a certain size?  I assume there is some Microsoft spec or recommendation on this.  Please let me know your confidence level in your answer if you think there is a specific GB limit.  Thanks much.
