  • What is the total size of those folders? Outlook as limitation on exporting the PST.

  • The reason is due to the size of Public Folder.
    If you want to delete all the emails from the Public Folder, you can use OWA to do that...

    That's the good option you have or you Can use Outlook but as you said it hangs.
    Make sure you login as Admin to delete those emails.
