Are there file size limits that need to be taken into account when exporting mail?

Yes there are file size limits to take into account when exporting mail. If you have a large amount of mail or many large attachments, the target file receiving your messages can end up being very large.

Outlook 2003 and 2007 can store up to 20 GB of data in a single file using the Unicode PST format, and Outlook 2010 up to 50 GB. Older versions of Microsoft Outlook create ANSI PST files that are limited to 2 GB in size. Note that the PST size limit may be set smaller through registry settings (see the Microsoft Knowledge Base). If you believe the email data you are converting will be over 50 GB  when processing to a PST file, please select 50 GB under “Limit PST file size:”.

If you need to limit the size of the PST file you are creating with Aid4Mail 5, you can set a threshold value in the “Limit PST File Size” field under the “Target” settings.

If you experience any issues, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
