pst file size


K

Keith

I have just archived the bulk of my bloated (3gb) pst file but was surprised
to see that although an archive file has been created (2.8gb), the size of
the original pst file has not changed, despite the fact that old emails are
not longer visible. My reason for archiving was to try to get the pst file
down to a manageable size as it seems to be slowing the operation of my
Outlook 2007 program. What have I done wrong?
Thanks in advance.

When you archive mail, it goes into a separate PST file (usually called
archive.pst). Is this the PST file you're talking about?
