I am using Outlook on a Mac OSX and my email mailbox size has grown to 47GB.  I have increased my mailbox online to accommodate a mailbox larger than 50GB+, but I was curious if I was going to run into mailbox size restrictions in Outlook similar to a Windows machine.  If so, is there a way to increase this max mailbox size?

Thanks!

You likely won't hit size restrictions.

And best to remember, if you're actually using a mailbox that's a mbox single file, large mbox files can easily become corrupt + if they do, then recovery may be very time consuming.

Best to only use IMAP servers for large amounts of mail, so each message lives in it's own file.
