The Entourage 2004 & 2008 database has no size limit, just a limit to the number of items in the Entourage database: 2 million database items.

Even though there is no strict mailbox size limit for Entourage 2004 or 2008, it is recommended that a mailbox does not exceed 4 GB.

Thanks tbsgadi

The article says:
To prevent future Entourage database corruption, have the end user check that there are no folders that contain more than 3,000 items and that the mailbox is not too large. The end user may want to archive old items to avoid future database corruption

In outlook we can create .pst file.
But, is there a similar procedure to Entourage?
