  • The AutoArchive feature is set to run every 14 days. This moves items from the existing PST into an archive PST.
  • Each folder has its own AutoArchive properties, which determine when items in that folder are archived.
  • By default, Outlook saves archived items in the following location in Windows 9x:

C:\Windows\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook\Archive.pst

working with outlook data personal folders size limitations
Working with Outlook DataPersonal Folders: Size Limitations
  • The total file size of a PST cannot exceed 2 GB. PST files that exceed 2 GB size limit are unusable.
  • Items = folder, message, task, contact record, etc.
  • Each PST file can contain 16,384 items.
  • Each individual folder can contain a maximum of 16,384 items.

Working with Outlook DataPersonal Folders: Managing a PST on Two Machines
  • Outlook does not provide for automatically synchronizing a PST file between two different computers.
  • Workarounds include:
    • Copying the PST file to another machine.
    • Using Net Folders. This does not allow sharing of entire PST and synchronizes information through Internet Mail.
    • Receiving information through Internet Mail or Microsoft Mail.

Working with Outlook DataPersonal Folders: Personal vs. Public Folders
  • Personal Folder files are usually stored locally on your machine’s hard disk. However, they can reside also be located on a network server.
  • Public folders are located on the Exchange Server. They contain information shared by many users. Depending upon access permissions, individual users can create, read, update, or add to the public folder.

Working with Outlook DataImporting and Exporting: Importing from Other Data Types or Third-party Applications
  • Outlook 2000 will upgrade and silently convert data from many other e-mail programs during installation.
  • Before you import certain kinds of data, the import converters and/or the program for that type of information must be installed on your computer.
  • Outlook will also import text data, in files such as those with comma separated values and tab separated values.
working with outlook data importing and exporting importing user defined data
Working with Outlook DataImporting and Exporting: Importing User-Defined Data
  • Word Mail Merge Data Source - This is generally a table of names and addresses that needs to be converted to a comma-delimited (CSV) file within Word, then imported as a CSV file into the Outlook Contacts folder.
  • User-defined fields (or custom fields) - These cannot be imported or exported from or into other file formats using the Import and Export feature in Outlook. This is true of user-defined fields in all Outlook items.
slide16

Sharing Data Between Other Microsoft Applications and Mail MergeDesignating the Outlook Address Book as a Microsoft Word Mail Merge Data Source

  • Outlook gives you the ability to choose a subset of contacts and merge the relevant contact information into a letter, fax, envelope label, or e-mail.

  • Make sure the Contacts folder is selected as an e-mail address book by checking the properties of the Contacts folder. On the Outlook Address Book tab, select the "Show this folder as an e-mail address book” option.
