Did your Outlook is running very slow or do you have encountered slower performance while doing operations? Is it like day by day outlook getting slower and you are having trouble with sending and receiving mails? All these things will occur as your outlook becomes older. Older indicates towards the outlook files that become huge as you store more and more files on outlook. Outlook uses PST files to store all the user files and information about the files. Every single emails, attachments, notes, other files etc are saved inside the single PST file as by default Outlook creates one PST file per user.
As your usage increases and you store more emails, contacts and other items, Outlook PST becomes huge. When it reaches near 2GB size, it is very critical to operate with these PST because All versions of outlook that uses ANSI PST (used in outlook 2002 or earlier) have the 2GB oversize limit. According to that limit, if the size of outlook PST file crosses 2GB size limit, it becomes corrupted and unusable. It is because of the ANSI format that has some limitations of number of files and their size. So the Oversized outlook PST file is a PST file which is equals to or larger than 2GB.

It means truncating your mailbox is not the right option. Further you may accidentally delete important messages too while truncating inbox that cause data loss.
