Right now outlook 2003 saving Personal Folders PST on default location (local PC where outlook 2003 was installed)

How can I move existing (not to create a new one) PST (from local PC) to a network mapped drive for future use ?

Do I need to copy "Outlook.pst" from the the default location below ?

C:\Documents and Settings\frank\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook\Outlook.pst


to a new location :

Z:\Emails for Outlook 2003,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,Z is for drive name for my mapped folder from the server

I have read this article here ,,,,but I do not like to mess up

That's right, copy the pst file onto the sever and you will have to configure outlook to look at the z: drive for the location of the pst file.

I just did that , but I could not figure out how to configure outlook to be pointed to new location (i.e how to edit the path from default location to new location ?)
