Can't Change Message Store to a Mapped Drive in Outlook Express

Last Modified: 2012-06-22
Hello, folks,

I've got a client with a laptop running XP Pro, OE 6.  I've just joined the laptop to the company's domain.  I want to set up his Outlook Express to save messages to a location on the server.  He has a home directory on the server (U:) and a directory called Mail.  I copied all the pertinent .dbx files over to this directory.  However, when I go into Tools ->Maintenance -> Change Store, the only options I can choose which don't gray out the OK button are all locations on the local hard drive.

Can someone help?    PLEEEASE?
