I use MS Outlook for email and use an online back-up service. I find the biggest use of data seems to be backing up the pst file.

I know I can make it smaller by archiving the emails but quite like the ease of use by having them all there. Aside from not backing up the pst file are there any other tricks to solve this issue.

I thought about using Google apps for email but it looked like a hassle to switch over.

It depends on what online backup service you are using. Mozy should backup only the changed blocks not the whole file.

I am using Mozy and the size and length of time of each backup would suggest it is the whole file.

But then again maybe I'm wrong, will investigate further.

Interesting. I have about 7GB of PST and never do more than 300MB a day...
