How do I save old emails onto my computer from Exchange 2003 when they are kept on the server?  I do not want to have too many on the server taking space. We are using Outlook 2003 on the desktops and notebooks. Is there an easy way to do this?

 

Thanks

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

In Outlook, go to the File menu and choose New….Outlook Data File. This creates a local *.pst file. By default, it wants to bury this file in your Documents and Settings profile folder, but you can place it anywhere you want by typing in a path. Once it’s created, you’ll see an item called Personal Folder in Outlook. You can drag and drop items from your Exchange mailbox to the Personal Folder.

Here’s the MS article you need: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/829971.

    If you go into Outlook and select email accounts ---> change ---> more settings ---> advanced, you can either uncheck the "leave a copy on the server", or set it to delete from the server after a period of time. That can help keep your volume on the Exchange server down as well.
