    Re: Outlook (2003)

    I think you can, after closing Outlook and all Outlook windows. To prevent it from being recreated, you will need to go into Tools | Email accounts | View or Change | select your server | Change | More Settings | Advanced ... (at least, that's where I go on Exchange Server) | Offline Folder File Settings ... aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand, I believe that in Outlook 2003 on Exchange server, if your IT Admin has set you up to have an OST and you don't have permissions to change it, it will be recreated; I do not have permissions, so I can't do anything with the OST dialog except compact the folder. If so ... blame them. <img src=/S/anigrin.gif border=0 alt=anigrin width=19 height=19>

    Re: Outlook (2003)

    I'm new to Exchange Server, but I sometimes get Sync errors telling me that a particular message couldn't be sync'd to my server-side mailbox and exists only in my OST file. I'd hate to lose messages because I didn't have the OST. Also, I can't imagine that the IT policy is directed toward OST files. Most likely directed toward PST files and messages saved out to the file system.

    Can I safely delete my .ost file? (Outlook 2003)

    Can I safely delete my outlook.ost file? I may not save or archive any outlook emails (company rule).
