Hi, I am relatively new to Outlook 2016. I was using Outlook 2010. It seems 2016 has been a bit more fickle to work with. I also don't understand the storage or archiving locations that well in an IMAP environment.
t 700 megs
\outlook files\outlook data file - outlook.pst 13 gigs
So I state nothing is optimized, everything is dragging or simply not working. I don't understand how the OST functions in comparison to the PST. I assume the PST in my active email database file but when I select data files in mail within control panel, it points to the OST file... C:\Users\Michael\AppData\L
I ran a scanpst hoping to resolve some issues with the PST. It did find a bunch of errors. I have yet to open it back yet.
I use to chop off PSTs and create new PSTs to stash my previous year's data into. However, I was consulted on enabling archiving. I set it to archive after 8 months of data. However, my PST is bigger than ever and I can clearly see archiving is not doing its job. There email data lingering beyond the 8 month mark. I am almost tempted to migrate from G Suite to O 365 Exchange because this shiat is annoying.
