    How did you save your PST in 2003???

    From 2003 onwards there was the capability to save you PST as UniCode that allows a larger PST file size (20GB)

        Buy a copy of Outlook 2003 and install it at home and all will work.
        1 1 was a racehorse.
        2 2 was 1 2.

          To the OP.

          This is probably the only way you will get it to work properly.

            I believe Office 2003 can create Office 2000 compatible PST files. So you'd have to create one, then transfer the mail from the Office 2003 PST to the Office 2000 PST.

                When you open File/New/Outlook data file you get the choice then.
                If you are just copying the file that already exists on your machine (I'm assuming you are therefore not attached to Exchange) then it will not be the correct type (unless upgraded possibly). Try copying the contents into a newly created PST.
