In accounts on the Exchange Server, the messages are saved on the server as long as they are in any folder in your Mailbox.

To see how much space you are using, point to Mailbox at the top of the Folder List and right click. Select Properties for Mailbox - name. Click the Folder Size button on the displayed dialog box. It will calculate the size and display the Total Size and list all of the folders with their individual sizes that add up to the Total Size.

It will display the ten most recently used folders and last it has Move to Folder which displays the Move Items dialog box shown in the figure on the left. Select the folder to put the message in and click OK. In order to move messages off of the Exchange Server and onto your hard drive you will need to create Personal Folders. Look in your Folder List (see the figure) to see if Personal Folders is already set up, it will be at or near the bottom of the Folder List. If Personal Folders are not set up, then click File, New, Outlook Data File. A dialog box is displayed, select Office Outlook Personal Folders File (.pst), click OK. Once Personal Folders is set up, you can create subfolders in the same manner as described above. You can make as many subfolders as desired and the subfolders may have subfolders. You can move messages to the Personal Folders by dragging them and dropping them into a subfolder or you can click the Move to Folder button and select a subfolder of the Personal Folders. Everything in Personal Folders is stored on the hard drive of your computer. When it is moved from the Inbox to Personal Folders it is removed from the Exchange Server and is no longer taking up space in your Mailbox on the Server. So this frees up space. You will only be able to access the messages in Personal Folders from the specific computer you were using when you moved them to the Personal Folders. For example, if you set up Personal Folders at work and you are using your home computer, you will not be able to pull up the messages in Personal Folders until you go back to work.
