I run Outlook 2003 so I don’t think I would have the 2Gb
problem referenced in your last newsletter (
http://langa.com/newsletters/2006/2006-11-02.htm#3 )… however, in
the interest of keeping it smaller…I ran autoarchive on all my
folders….I now have an archive.pst file in addition to outlook.pst.
Problem is…outlook.pst did not change in size one whit….what’s up with
that? If some items move to archive.pst shouldn’t outlook.pst get smaller?
Thanks. Your newsletter is the best. —Michael

Hi Fred! This is probably a simple answer to
a simple question but I really need to know the answer and don’t know XP
very well. How the hell can I get rid of temporary internet files and

Yo! Hi Fred. As always, Thanx for a
great newsletter and all the goodies you unearth. RE: Outlook Express lost inbox (
http://langa.com/newsletters/2006/2006-10-09.htm#7 ). Looks like the dreaded

tool to recover these. Hope this helps your readers. Peace. —Andy
