  • Number of .pst

    hello,

    I would like to know how many .pst can be mounted in a outlook profile.

    Does a great number of .pst could slow down some services used by outlook ?

    Thanks

    Re: Number of .pst

    AFAIK (apart from system RAM) there is no real limit to the number of PST files you can have open.

    They can slow the systems down (as can opening a large mailbox on Exchange over a WAN, for example). No practical basis for this, but it may be better to have multiple small PSTs rather than one big one -- less to trawl through when you are working in one PST?

      Thanks for your response but I'd like to know if Microsoft recommands a limitation for the personal folders mapped (for a standard PC ex. Pentium4 with 512mb ram)

        In case the link goes dead in some years from now, the number mentioned is 128, but you will have already read that in the reply to your question on that site, eh popinss.
