But be careful! As Microsoft point out in the small print:
Each .pst file can contain 16,384 items. An item is either a folder, message,
task, etc. Each folder can contain a maximum of 16,384 items.
If you select the option to "Allow upgrade to large tables," each folder
can contain up to 65,536 items. The total file size of a.pst cannot
exceed 2 Gigabytes (GB)....
The .ost file can contain as many root folders as you desire and each folder
contain a maximum of 16 kilobyte (KB) subfolders. The .ost has a 16 KB folder
by default, and this cannot be upgraded to allow large tables. The total file
size of an
ost cannot exceed 2 gigabyte (GB).
If you exceed those two gig, Oulook has a habit of crashing and destroying
on the way down. You lose everything....As good a reason as viruses not not
to use Outlook.
Happy new year!
