it's set in the registry

**NOTE** as with any registry change use caution and do at own risk!

got to Start then Run
enter REGEDIT
go to
HKEY_Current_user\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\explorer\shell folders\
change PERSONAL to the path you want

You also need to do the same in
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\explorer\shell folders\


this will change the default place to save your files in Outlook

Good luck :)  ~TechGrrl
