Outlook is not letting me receive new emails as my PST size is getting close to 2GB, which is odd as it's 2007 which I thought had increased the limit. Could be that the PST dates way way back to Office 1997 times - but I'm struggling to increase the size.

Googling about found me a registry hack:

Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Outlook\PST (which didn't already exist, which was confusing) and create these two keys - "MaxLargeFileSize"=dword:00007800 and "WarnLargeFileSize"=dword:00007200.

Restarted Outlook ... tried to send/receive ... same problem. Still thinks it's a 2GB limit.

Did I go wrong somewhere?

Turns out I had to make another couple of keys - MaxFileSize and WarnFileSize.

Done that ... still doesn't work :(
