    Reduce the size of an Outlook Data File (.pst or .ost)
    1. Delete any items that you do not want to keep and empty the Deleted Items folder.
    2. Click File > Account Settings >Account Settings.
    3. On the Data Files tab, click the data file that you want to compact, and then click Settings.

    Depending on the format of the PST (2000/2003, 2007, 2010) and the size, this process can take a very long time.

    I worked at a place where the hit the old 4GB cap regularly and would have five or six of these (because they never ever deleted anything). I would routinely have to start them at night as the user was leaving, and it would usually be done by morning.
