I have a user here at the school that needs to be migrated from Thunderbird to Outlook (apparently Thunderbird isn't totally compatible with IMAP and his sent emails are taking 15-45mins to be populated in his "Sent Items" folder).  My question is, is there a maximum file size that the PST can reach?  Right now his Thunderbird profile is almost 75GB.  I know this is ridiculous but he says he "needs" all of these emails.

I would worry about such large PST's though, easy to get corrupted....
