Outlook 97-2002 Personal Folders File (PST) is the format that cannot be larger then 2GB. If you are using the new "Unicode" PST file this can support up to 22GB. I would not recommend this if you are going to use the new Unicode PST format, as it can cause corruption issues.

Hope this helps~!

Microsoft Office XP Service Pack 1 provides better protection against Personal Folders .pst and offline folders .ost file growing past the 2GB size limit. Once an PST or OST file reaches 1.82GB, users with SP1 will not be able to add new items.
