    ON is good for 1001 things.
    But it definitely is not a substitute for a mail-store.

    One can send mails to ON from Outlook in order to have them in a certain
    contetxt. But this feature is not meant for storing masses of mails.
    And: Sending a mail from Outlook to ON does not include any attachments.

    You have to solve the problem in Outlook itself.
    There is a number of ways:
    1.) Archive old mails (as Bernd suggested).
    2.) Increase the spavce at the location where the *.PST files are
    stored.
    3.) Save the "big" attachments to a some other storage mediim and delete
    them for the mail.

    One thing I've found to be useful in OneNote re: archiving Outlook
    emails is that when I find an item to be kept as reference -- a
    technical bulletin, for example -- I send it from Outlook to OneNote
    and then delete it from Outlook. OneNote's ability to index and
    retrieve information on the fly is in my opinion vital to anyone who
    has to look things up. I use this capability for my radio hobbies,
    for my professional work as a tech support geek, and for just about
    anything else you can imagine.

    Actually, your statement about emails coming from Outlook not having
    attachments is not accurate.

    I have thousands of emails stored in ON and they all contain the attachments
    they came with. The issue is, all the attachments are dumped into the
    "C\Temp\OneNoteAttachments\" subdirectory, rather than actually filing them
    in the notebook where you move the note.

    Moving emails to ON is, in my opinion, a good idea as the emails can now be
    stored in contexts that make them logical to find and, as in my case, part of
    a larger body of information on a given subject.

    I can see sending certain specific e-mails to OneNote, or linking to Outlook
    e-mails from OneNote, but OneNote really isn't a great indexing system for
    large volumes of e-mail. Besides, all of the modern versions of Outlook
    already have an excellent search capability and a very deep folder
    capability.
