Outlook Mail & Calendar filling 8,83G on storage RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all!

    I've had a warning yesterday night saying that my phone storage was near full (14,1 Go used out of 14,5 Go). Looking at what was taking that much space, it was Outlook Mail & Calendar app (8,83Go). Not the emails itself (around 19,4Mo), I'm synching 7 only on my two accounts.

    Any ideas on how to solve that issue without reseting Windows ? I'm using Windows 10.0.10586.63 and the Outlook Mail and Calendar version is 17.6525.42272.0 on a Lumia 830

    Best regards,

  • Can you please share the screenshot of Storage Sense which is located in System->Storage->This Device. Storage Sense will show "Mail & Messaging" category and what's the size taking up. Secondly you go to "Apps & games" category and select "Sort by size" and share the screen shot as well.

  • This also affect me too. From my Lumia 430. Two mail accounts and 3 month syncing. 

    "Apps & games" - 3.79 GB

    "Mail & Messaging" - 125 MB

    The "Mail and Calendar" took 2.24 GB so my phone storage (8GB) nearly full. 

    Searched around and found someone has the same problem:


    Please fix it if its a bug. If its all about the email size, please add an option to move all the mail to SD card.
