'[OT]: Outlook folder sizes...'

I'm having some trouble with Outlook. I just installed it recently, and
imported my messages from Outlook express. Several of my mail folders are
huge (20K+ messages, and up to 100MB), and Outlook will not let me move
messages to these folders. When using rules to automatically sort my mail,
it still doesn't get moved, meaning my inbox just becomes a cluttered mess.
Outlook Express doesn't give me any trouble. I've looked everywhere for a
maximum folder size setting, and can't find anything. What am I missing?
I've done two installs on two machines running Win2K with the same results.

Thanks!

Steve

In my experience, the deleted items folder will only allow 16383 messages.
This is using real Outlook (not express).  There is no max folder size
setting to my knowledge, but there are some autoarchive settings.  It's
amusing that Outlook Express supports 20K+ messages but not Outlook.  I'd
say either switch back or switch to a "real" email program like Eudora or
Mulberry.  The only reason I continue to use Outlook is because it has all
of the date/calendar reminder/appointment stuff, and I don't think Eudora or
Mulberry have that (am I wrong?)

Find SCANPST.exe and see if you have any errors.

If you're using LookOut 2000 :-) (and maybe OL2002) this knowledge base
article may help.

In case the URL doesn't work, search the MS knowledge base for "Q197430"
