    I know this is probably easy but I was curious what the instructions are to convert 2000 .pst to 2003 to take advantage of the available space. I have a user who is working on the 2000 limit and need to upgrade.

    Thanks in advance

    If you, or your user, are/is now using Outlook 2003, I would assume you could just copy the 2000 .PST file over to where your 2003 Outlook is running and then import it.

    Or, after copying the 2000 .pst file over to the new hard drive, open it with Outlook 2003.
    File > Open > Outlook Data File
    Browse to the location of the .pst file and select it.

    Then create a new .pst file in Outlook 2003
    File > New > Outlook Data File
    Within Outlook 2003, copy the contents of the version 2000 .pst file to the version 2003 .pst file.
    Your formatting should stay intact.

    You can also just import the data from the old pst as well. Try "File">>"Import and Export" from the menu bar.
