Hi,

Just found this site and I really appreciate it, I've had Outlook issues in the past and never really found answers.

Current issue is that I can't receive my mail because my file is too big, so I googled and found you guys and found the perfect solution "Convert an ANSI PST to a UNICODE PST"

I followed the directions with no problem until I got to the IMPORT, it was fine till after I chose my file to be imported, the options to "replace duplicate, allow dup, or do not import dup" came up and I tried replace, then allow, anyway the next thing that happens is I get the message "this outlook data file (pst.) is already in use in the current profile" so I know I did something wrong.

I have Outlook 2010 32bit. Any suggestions???????

Thanks so much :)

Try this: go to File, Account Settings, Data file. Do you have the old data and the new one listed? Select the old one and click the remove button. Now try importing.

Thanks for the help. Before going so far as to delete it, I just made the new one as default and changed my default email to go to the new one. I got the message about calendars, etc being connected to the default, so I decided to check out my calendar because it's hooked into icloud, and it was heck to get working properly. Everything was different and I don't have the expertise or the courage to go through that again.

Maybe I'll just start deleting messages to free up space....:( When I have time, I'll search the forums for icloud issues.
