In our Exchange environment, our company caps the size of an Exchange account at a certain size. That size is the sum of all the exchange related stuff stored on the server - includign both the Inbox and the Calendar.

I can tell with the Mailbox properties, Folder Size... window that my Calendar is a good 50% of my account's footprint.

Is there any way to get a more detailed view of what meetings in the Calendar are taking up the space? Given the general pattern of incoming mail, it's my belief that 2-5 meetings are responsible for 75% of the memory consumption... I just need to find which meetings are the problem... and with my current calendar, it's a bit like finding a needle in a haystack.

Anyone got a trick for this?

Other details - it's Outlook 2003 on XP

How do I get to the "All Appointments" view? My inclination was the View menu, but that isn't right... FYI - I'm using 2003 – bethlakshmi Mar 23 '10 at 15:10
@bethlakshmi - You can use "By Category" view for this – Shevek Mar 23 '10 at 15:32
