Re: size increase of ms outlook

Negative on that partner...

Your PST (email folder) file should not be bigger than 1.8Gb, once it reaches that size, you cannot receive or send emails.

What you can do is save the email attachments on your hard drive and delete them from the email message itself, saving only the message.

Make PST files that only contain up to 1.5Gb, then create more with other names (like Inbox200712_01.pst, Inbox200712_02.pst) for example.

If you have further questions or comments, please do so. If not and if the answer was good for you, please rate it as FixYa!

How can I export all my outlook xp email accounts and settings to outlook express 6? I want to use my laptop while I'm away from my desktop and I don't want to have to setup my mail accounts, passwords,...

For creation of backup I used this tool, try:
Outlook Express is one of the most popular mail clients at the moment. Its popularity is attributed to the fact that it is included in the distribution package of all Windows operating systems starting from version 95 OSR2. It is absent from Windows Vista and later in Windows 7 where another mail client is used - Microsoft Mail. So, users quite often encounter the problem of backing up information from Outlook Express. You can solve it with Outlook Express Backup Toolbox.

You must save (Export) the Express files as .pst files and then import them into Outlookk 2003 using the Import command.
The Import and Export functions can be found under the File tabs for Express and 2003.
Let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks.

Outlook 2003 I want name at end of email

You can do that when you set up your signature and it is in HTML. To set up HTML format on all emails, go to Tools -> options -> Mail format and on "Send this message format" make sure that HTML is selected.

For the signature, on the same Mail format tab, select the signature and select the file or make your signature on the same window. In making your signature without using Outlook, you can use MS WORD and save it as a web page/web page filtered and have the file selected when choosing your signature in Outlook.
