    Rename a Microsoft Exchange data file in Outlook 2010

    Now that I have the files set up properly, including the Exchange settings, is there a way to rename the data file so that it doesn't look like this?

    cwbillow@componentics.com - cwbillow@componentics.com.ost

    ?

    My ISP used the OutlookConfigurator to auto-setup the Exchange connections, and I don't recall any choice for file name. And I am a bit wary about messing with the files since they aren't "local" and are not like the IMAP file setup I am used to using.

    Is there a way to fix this?

    Regards,
