What size is it ?

To reduce the size, you will just create a new one.
don't forget to re-map that pst back into outlook.

I'm still a bit lost, havent used outlook 2k much before... I havent checked the size of it yet but IF it's over 500 mb then how do I make a new one and re-map that pst back into outlook? Thank you.

Oh wow... that will take a while to explain if you have never really used 2k that much...

Have you searched the MS KB ?

To create a new .pst, select File, New, Outlook Data File..., then select "Office Outlook Personal Folders File (.pst)", and OK. In the next dialog box specify the location and name of your new .pst. I tend to place my archive .pst files in a common mail directory on another machine on my network, but keeping it along side your existing personal folders is also common. Pick something that reflects how you'll organize your email, and press OK. In the next dialog, specify the display name (I usually just use the file's name). Leave the other settings as they are for now, and press OK.

when you go to creat a pst file, name it and then save it. Local Settings folder is hidden

Heh, turns out that she has over 700 calendar items so I think that's what is causing it.
