Hello all,

I found a hotfix from Microsoft for setting the .pst file independently of the .ost file, however, does anyone know a solution for outlook 2003 and outlook 2010?

Here is the article for Outlook 2007 SP1

Thanks

Hi,

The specific problem only occurs in Outlook 2010. For Outlook 2003 and Outlook 2010, you can also use the method.

Here is a KB article on how to do this:

How to configure the size limit for both (.pst) and (.ost) files in Outlook 2010, Outlook 2007, and in Outlook 2003

Sally,

Thanks for the reply. Maybe my question was not very clear. I've read the article you mentioned, that allows you to limit the size of .pst AND .ost together, but not individually.

I want to restrct the size of .pst files clients can have but I don't want their .ost files (which is their offline exchange mailbox) to be restricted. I found the solution for Outlook 2007 sp1, but am not able to find the same for Outlook 2003 & Outlook 2010.

Also, your reply wasn't very clear about "The specific problem only occurs in Outlook 2010. For Outlook 2003 and Outlook 2010, you can also use the method." - What problem only occurs in Outlook 2010?

Thanks

Hi,

I was trying to say:

In this KB (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/943354/), it is talking about the specific issue occurs in Outlook 2007.

For Outlook 2003 and Outlook 2010, you can also use the method mentioned in the KB article.

Best Regards,
