    Compress .PST file

    Long ago in the days of Outlook Express, I could compress the file. Pardon a dumb question, but I can't find how to do it in Outlook.

    I recall a WOW item some months ago about deleting the unwanted and exporting the whole thing to comma-delimited, and re-importing, or something like that. Is that really the only solution?

    Er, uh, thanks a HUGE amount; I'm left to mumble to myself about why asking ClipIt "compress" produces nothing useful...

    Thanks!

    most likely because outlook uses the term "compact" and if that answer is not good enough - maybe we should call him ClipIdiot's [img]/w3timages/icons/laugh.gif[/img]

    don't you think clipit should know some people will search on compress and that it's the same as compact?
