Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

A new PST file format was introduced with Outlook 2003, which doesn’t have the 2 GB size limit that the previous format had.

However, the PST file format is not automatically converted when you import an old PST file into a newer version of Outlook, and there is no way to directly ‘convert’ one file to the new format. The easiest way is to create a new file and then move/import the messages to it.

Take a look at this:

    When you say it "gets full" do you mean you have reached the limit given to your mailbox on Exchange? Is this an Exchange account? If it is you can ask for more space. If you are not allowed more space you can try archiving your mail using auto-archive. That also may or may not be allowed on your account. Is this a business Exchange account or a personal email pst account? Please provide more details. Thanks.
