    Hello All:
    I am trying to find a way to programmatically compress Outlook's PST file.
    This code would essentially perform the same as the "compress now" button on
    the properties\advanced page.

    Thanks in advance,

    Try compressing the size of PST files by following the below steps:

    1. Open Outlook application and delete unwanted items by opening folder list
    2. Go to navigation tab and right click on Delete items folder > Empty Folder
    Click on File tab > Account Settings > Account Settings
    Select Data Files tab > Settings > Compact Now

    For more solutions such as compressing OST files, managing Outlook folders, etc. you may refer to this informative blog post:
