    oh, one thing that you may need to look at is whether you want to keep a copy of the emails on the server or to move them on to your pc.
    I, and I'm sure most others, keep a copy on the server... as backup (since we have like 2.7G of storage on there.)

    .PST's are awesome.

    Another good thing to note is that with Office 2003, .PST's are reliable over 2GB (a limit in place with Office XP and older). I have read they have been tested and reliable up as high as 20GB, but I dont know how accurate that is.

    Like what kind of emails are you getting? lol
    Just throwing in everything that exists on your C: drive into your calendar or whuchever folder in outlook?

    I suppose signing up for junk mail and letting it accumulate would speed things up.

    It does work, but there are so many features available on the web version (such as labels, threading, and archiving), that I usually just use the web version. Heck, I even have spare gmail accounts forwarding things to my primary gmail account.

    Theres even a way to filter non gmail accounts through gmail for the spam filtering (requires some advanced filter configuration though)
