File location with Outlook Express 5.0 ?

I'm using Outlook Express 5.0 on Win98 and all my mails folders are stored on a network drive. Unfortunatly during last reboot of my PC, this network drive was not available and Outlook Express has been started. Of course it cannot find my folders and defined its own ones on a local disk.

I used to know where to change this setup using regedit for the release 4.0, but what's aboout Outlook Express 5.0?

Thanks in advance for your help.

I think you can set it here: Tools menu > Options > Maintenance > Store Folder

Ok thanks for your feedback, I did not know that new menu. I tried it, but my problem now is that when as soon as a network directory is selected using this menu, the OK button is grayed out and my real file location cannot be set!
Any idea?

In fact I found the answer to my question searching through the registry keys on my PC.
The new "location" in the registry for Outlook 5 is:
HKEY_USERS\DEFAULT\Idendities\...\SOftware\Microsoft\Outlook Express\5.0

maybe I'm confused because I used to work on a NT Workstation where the location was quite different.

You might also want to look at the same key under the HKey_Current_User hive.
