I am using Outlook 2003, my archive folder is about 6GB, and I would like to

know the maximum size limit for personal email folder on Outlook 2003 before

it crashed. Does anyone have any suggestions? As I know, for outlook express,

the maximum size limit is about 2 GB, if the folder size is more than that,

then I cannot able to retrieve this folder any more. Does anyone have any

suggestions on the maximum size limit for Outlook 2003?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions

Outlook's Unicode PST starts with a maximum soze of 20GB, but that can be

adjusted upward with registry settings. The theoretical size limit is in the

the terabytes.
