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

Hello Mobilink,
what you have to do is shrink the PST file, to do this in Outlook right click the folder you see (the PST file itself) choose properties/advanced/size and then press the <b>Compact Now</b> button.
I hope this helps.
here an example picture:
