Hello everyone,

I'm going to switch from the Outlook Express to Microsoft Outlook but before I do I'd like to know if in MS Outlook I can define a dedicated folder on another partition for the incoming/outgoing post as it is in OE.

I've tried to change the folder but unfortunately I only could see this location without permission to change (even with Administrator rights).
Another qquestion is if the database files for incoming/outgoing/(other folders) post are separate (as it is with OE) or it is only one common file?

Thanks in advance for help!

Outlook uses a pst file; not a database. By default, when you start Outlook for the first time, a pst is created under your profile.

If you already have a Mail option in your Control Panel, you can use that and select Data files, then add the pst there, naming it and locating it wherever you wish. (Putting it in the root, or in an Outlook folder.)

Then, when you actually run Outlook, it will point to the pst file that you created.
