Outlook 2003 Incorrect PST size warning

I am getting a warning message that says the pst has reached it's limit when I try to add an email to it, and won't let me add to it. This happened after I set the registry "MaxLargeFileSize" to the recommended value of 20480 ( 20 GB ). The PST file is only 3.8 GB ( 3,867,173 KB ). I checked the type of PST by looking at the properties. The format is "Personal Folders". I am stumped.

Did you set the value to "20480" or to "0x00005000"?

Created DWORD and then "decimal" radio button and set to 20480.

Why do not you split PST into multiple PST files one for every email folder than you will be able to store more data into PST. http://www.nucleustechnologies.com/pst-split.html

Too much headache. If I have to, I will create a new PST and transfer all the email over. Maybe that will work.
