Outlook pst at max size & not reducing
Posted on 2012-09-11
Outlook 2003: Getting message that my outlook.pst has reached its maximum size.
Deleted (permanently) and archived many messages: Size did not reduce
Ran Compact: Size did not reduce
Ran Scanpst: Found 20 errors & ran Repair which completed successfully: Size still did not reduce
Disabled Anti-virus (someone suggested this can cause Compact to not work) but did not help
PST size is 1,906,641
Also new incoming emails are getting downloaded (as they are no longer available to view on ISP's webmail server) but are not showing up in Outlook.
Assuming someone comes up with a solution to getting my pst file size down, will I then get these emails (as they are important) or have they gone down a black hole?
