You cannot archive or move items to PST in Outlook 2000 that is installed with Corporate or Workgroup option

NOTE: The procedures in this article only apply if you have installed Outlook with the Corporate or Workgroup option. With this option, you can use Messaging Application Programming Interface (MAPI) services. To determine your installation type, click About Microsoft Outlook on the Help menu. If you have the Corporate or Workgroup installation, you see "Corporate or Workgroup".


You are unable to AutoArchive e-mail, or you are unable to manually move large messages to a personal folders file (.pst). Some small items may be movable one at a time, but larger operations fail. This true regardless of where the archive or move operation is attempted.


You are at, or very near the mailbox size limitation. To move an item from a server-based mailbox to a .pst file, the item must first be copied. If there is insufficient free space in the server-based mailbox, the item cannot be copied and the archive or move operation fails.


To work around this problem, choose one of these methods.

  • Remove extraneous items from the server-based mailbox to create more free space.
  • Ask your server administrator to increase the mailbox size limitation.
  • Ask your server administrator to remove the mailbox size limitation. After the archive or move operation completes successfully, the mailbox size limitation can be reinstated.
