Outlook 2003 Settings

OK, so I'm using an IMAP email account with OUtlook 2003.  I have the default "Personal Folders" PST (Outlook.pst) and of course the PST associated with the email account (account.pst).

All of my custom settings (rules and alerts, field choices, outlook address book customizations) are being stored in account.pst

I would like all of this to instead be stored in Outlook.pst... can someone tell me how to do that, if possible?

You can export/import rules.

Import or export a set of rules

But I'm not aware of how to export the other formatting for your address book etc. Why not make a copy of account.pst and name it outlook.pst and get it there that way. If outlook.pst is already existing and you want to keep the mail and such that is in there. then copy account.pst and make it new.pst. Dump out whatever you don't want and then import whatever you want from outlook.pst. When finsihed rename outlook.pst to outlook.pst.old and rename new.pst to outlook.pst.

I'm not sure how else you could maintain your folder formatting...
