Hi,
I want to increase my outlook data file size more than 2GB.

I found a description under the link [http://support.microsoft.com/kb/
832925]
They told to change the values of the
MaxFileSize,WarnFileSize,MaxLargeFileSize and WarnLargeFileSize under
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Outlook\PST] in the
registry
And if I don't find the PST they told me to create.
But I can't find Office under [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies
\Microsoft\]
I only have System Certificates and Windows under the above mentioned
location
So now where can I create the registry key?

Thank you in advance for the help
SrinivasanPrabakaran.

Automatic if you have Unicode PST. If you have an ANSI PST carried over
from OL 2002 or earlier, nothing you can do in the registry will allow that
file to grow beyond 2 GB. You must create a new Unicode PST, make it your
delivery location, then transfer the contents of the old PST to the new one.

There's absolutely no reason to mess with these keys. A Unicode PST minimum
size limit _starts_ at 20 GB.
