Recently upgraded a number of users who were using the XP ver. of Outlook, to Outlook 2003. Have a user today, who after being upgraded, is still getting size limitation errors. The old version was limited to a .pst file size of 2gb...where Outlook 2003 allows this file to be 20gb. Why would she still be getting the size error??? (Her .pst is currently at 1.9gb)

Dark Mage:
There was a similar question asked in the Microsoft Support forums here.

Here's the answer....

Vince Averello [MVP-Outlook]
Is the PST file using the new format? Simply upgrading to OL2003 won't
increase the PST capacity. You've got to create a new PST using that format,
copy your existing data into it then replace your existing PST with the new
one.
