Outlook < 2007 were limited to 2GB .pst files.

IMAP support got much better in 2007, and is even better in 2010, but
Outlook still only really shines as an Exchange client, and that is the
way Microsoft wants it (and understandably so)...
Personally, I would only use Outlook in an Exchange environment, never
as a standalone email client, although it's calendar is much better than
Thunderbird+Lightning I'm sad to say...
