    Dennis, this is all super helpful.

    I guess you are familiar with the saying about alligators and draining the swamp?
    I will run the new VBA and see what i get
    the reason for your other questions is that the number of items (in THIS Instance is NOT a good indicator of size)
    Many email here contain upward of 10mb of data attached.
    Plus these people use Outlook like a filing cabinet and have been doing so for over 5 years.

    I was able to get a 'directory listing" form a MS tech (easy for them, it is their product after all)
    that shows things in a better perspective but still not with the SIZE per folder.
    I can't worry about size per email right now.

    The normal settings for Outlook would protect them from overload IF they had installed a clean copy with out importing the old one once in a while but for five years they have update the old. So the SENT folder is FULL of these 5-10MB emails from 4 or 5 years ago as well as the ones they sent last ear, this year and every year in between
    I know what AutoArchive is for. I also know they have NOT been using it
    And the final problem is NONE of them is willing to use the Web Portal for Outlook which has never had a problem at all.
    ONLY Desktop and Always with AutoDiscover.
    Trust me, this is far more complex than it sounds
    They have iPhones with Apple Mail configured to use their exchange accounts also involved too.

    "Techs so busy fighting alligators that they forget to drain the swamp, which will eliminate the alligator issue altogether."

    This is where we are right now.

    Somehow or other, copying the code into my post Amended sample script from StackOverflow above created an error.
    I have corrected it now.

    The lines
    For Each folder2 In folder.Folders    
        ProcessFolder folder2
    had somehow been pasted as a single line - and that created a syntax error
    For Each folder2 In folder.Folders ProcessFolder folder2 Next

    You have not mentioned that before. How was it done?

    where does the printed output go? I guess it ran but i didn't see any results. Screen flashed once after a minute or so.
    No errors. I looked in the folder where PST is stored but saw nothing new
    BTW The version of Outlook is Office-365 / Outlook 2016 if that matters

    There is no printed output. As I explained, the sample script sends its output to the Immediate window from where it needs to be copied into, for example, Excel for manual processing.
