NOTE: The above settings are for Gmail and Hotmail account. In case if you have connected your own domain.com account into Outlook then in that situation you need to use your domain.com account settings (To have the correct settings, you can contact your domain provider).

Cleanup Mailbox if the Size of PST File is Too Large

  • If the PST file exceeds its size limitation, then it may result as a host of new problems for you. As a result, the error 0x800CCC92 is received. When you optimize the PST file, it will not only counter this error from re-appearing, but also improve the overall functioning of the application. To optimize Microsoft Outlook, just do the following:
1) Setting Up Auto-Archiving in Outlook 2013

Follow these steps to search and view an archived item:

  • Click on the Open Outlook Data File
  • From Open Outlook Data File box, select the file you want to open (The file you select will appear in the File Name text box) and click on the OK button.
DISCLAIMER: The name of the data file you opened will arrive in the Navigation pane, below your ordinary set of folders.

Follow these steps to determine the name of the archive data file that you want to open
  • Click on the File tab >> click to select the Cleanup Tools button >> click on Archive button
  • Take a glance at the Archive File text box and make sure that you are not modifying any of the data information; otherwise, Outlook can send your archived items elsewhere. The information in the Archive File text box is usually complex with colons, slashes as well as all those word that normal people can’t remember.
Follow these steps to close the archive data file
  • Under the Folder pane, right-click on the name of the Archive data file select Close Archive.
4) Clearing Your Deleted Items Folder
  • Before you clear your Deleted Items folder, if you accidentally deleted a message that you do not wish to delete, go to Deleted Items folder, and you’ll find the item(s) listed in the folder.
  • To recover deleted items from Deleted Items folder, you need to simply drag those PST items from Deleted folder and drag it to the preferred folder.

  • Click on OK to clear your Deleted Items folder automatically
  • To be notified just before the Deleted Items folders are cleared automatically, click to go to the Advanced Tab and choose the Prompt for Confirmation before permanently deleting Items check box.

Advanced Method to Solve the Sending/Receiving Error

It has always been seen that due to large size of your PST file you may not able to recover them even using Inbox Repair tool since it used to recover smaller sized PST file and hence when you try to recover larger sized PST file, it may result as a time taking process for you. Therefore, to resolve such kind of issues you may need to opt for a Third Party Tool like PST Repair Tool which I would recommend you based on my experience with the tool, which may help you to recover your PST file no matter what size it is.
