What view are you using? Does your "Unread Mail" search folder show them? Do
you have any rules? Are they in your Junk E-mail folder? Do you scan
incoming messages with an anti-virus or -spam program?

A Unicode PST can hold one terabyte, with the default maximum size of 20GB.
Only if you're using an old format ANSI PST are you limited to 2GB.

By doing what you describe, you've probably corrupted your mail profile. You
cannot simply rename PSTs when they're connected with a mail profile.
