Microsoft Outlook is the most used application by majority of the computer professionals for communication purpose, like sending or receiving mails with attachments. Along with sending or receiving mails, the user can save contacts in different formats in his address book, maintain events in calendar, save notes and do many other tasks which are provided by this application. All the information is saved in a particular file called as PST (Personal Storage Table) on your PC hard drive. As the inbox gets loaded with mails, the PST file gets large and hence sometimes gets too large enough to block access to all the data that is saved in respective PST file.

The PST file gets too large when the user doesn’t keep a note of all the received or sent mails in Inbox, Outbox, Sent Items, Deleted Items folder and other personal folders. So the first thing you must do when you open mail box is to check whether the received mails are required or not; if not first delete them with the help of delete options provided by the application itself.
