Mail Size Increasing When Moved To A PST - 24.Jan.2001 5:18:00 AM   
Guest
One of my Directors has noticed that when he moves a mail from his Inbox on the server to a Personal Folder the size of the message increases by about 5x.

I have done some expermenting on my mailbox and managed to get an increase in size of about 3x when moving mails. When moving mails back from the pst to the server mailbox they return to the original size.

I have found out some info that says when you move a message off of the server into a pst it saves 2 copies, 1 in RTF format and 1 in plain text, but I dont think that would explain the 3-5x size increase. Does anybody know what other factors would be involved in the size increase?

Many Thanks

Messages are stored differently in Exchange
than they are in PSTs because of the limitations of PSTs messages will always
appear to be bigger.
