In Outlook Express 6 over Win XP, which is the maximum size of a folder?.
I heard something that the max is 2GB but i'm not sure about that.
Also, there's a limit on the number of meesages that can be in a folder?.

Thanks in advance

Outlook Express was not designed to be storage, and is vulnerable to instability if it gets too full. If you can't bear to delete old emails, save them to your hard drive somewhere out of OE. If you need that much storage, consider an online email provider like GMail. (PM me for an invitation, if you are interested.) I would try to keep OE relatively empty- think in MB, not gigs.
