PST File size is too large

My pst file is 2.5 gb.  Suddenly I started getting an error message 0X80040600 and I am not able to do any thing in my outlook.  I cannot delete emails and when I run compress, it does not work.  I ran scanpst and the problem still did not go away.  How do I reduce the sie of my pst file?

You'll probably need the PST2GB tool from Microsoft: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=B33B1DFF-6F50-411D-BBDF-82019DDA602E&displaylang=en

Once it works you'll want to make sure you're using UNICODE PST files. The top of this article talks about that a bit:http://www.officeforlawyers.com/outlook/tsol.htm
