    Moving IMAP pst store (Outlook 2002)

    How can I move the location of my IMAP PST file (my primary email account)? I need to move it to a special folder where I store all my PST files. I've moved all my POP account pst files with no problem. I cannot control, however, where my IMAP pst store is located. If I move the IMAP pst to another folder, it no longer is associated with the IMAP email account. When I create an IMAP email account, I can't specify where the pst file will be located. Is there any way--even via a registry edit--to get my IMAP pst store in my encrypted folder, instead of the default location?

    You need to set up the account, close outlook. Move the pst and change the delivery location using the mail applet or in the registry, then reopen Outlook. It's not very reliable and will often revent to the default location.

    The folder location is in a key under HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionWindows Messaging SubsystemProfiles

    Thanks for the help, Mary. I tried the registry edit, but it didn't stick even once. I also made sure the moved PST is listed in the mail applet 'Data Files', but somehow Outlook is finding the old location and file name. I searched the registry and all files on drive C for the pst filename, but came up with nothing. <img src=/S/frown.gif border=0 alt=frown width=15 height=15>

    The pst is in a hidden folder at Cocuments and SettingsuserLocal SettingsApplication DataMicrosoftOutlook. the key is in the subsystem tree, I'm pretty sure under 0a0d020000000000c000000000000046. You need to look at each of the values to find it, since they are encoded.
