I have tried everything I can think of and on one of our computers the Outlook 2003 email folders will not compact.

Lots of folders...

Any ideas?

Thanks!

Errors?  Messages?  Event Log Errors?

How do you know they won't compact?  Perhaps they already are.

That is a very old version but it always compacted for me. In addition to the above, try repairing Outlook to see if that helps.
