How do I go under registry file into "identities" and change the key value - path - so that it maps to R drive instead of the one that was on C drive.  I went into identities but I could not figure out where exactly to change the value so that it maps to different location?

I believe this is what you are looking for:

Windows 95 or Windows 98
To change the storage location of Outlook Express mail or news, change the Store Root registry value to the full path for the folder you want to use as the new storage location. This value is located in the following registry key:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Outlook Express

NOTE: The Store Root folder contains a Mail folder and a News folder in which the data files for mail and news are located. If you install Outlook Express without upgrading Internet Mail and News, the Store Root is the Outlook Express folder. If you include the Mail folder in the Store Root path, a new Mail and News folder is created in the existing Mail folder. As a result, you cannot see the messages in the Outlook Express\Mail folder until you remove Mail from the Store Root path. When you use user profiles, the "Store Root" value is located in the following registry key:
HKEY_USERS\username\Software\Microsoft\Outlook Express
where username is the name you use to log on to Windows 95/98.

Windows NT
