Exchange 2000, Outlook 2002 & PST Files

A domain user logged onto another computer other than her usual
machine. The result of that is when she used Outlook 2002 on another
machine her PST file was created on the local HDD in her profiles.

The previous Admin has set this profile to save on a shared folder
on the server.

I want to configure her Inbox to point to the shared folder but I
am going in circles. The specific error message is saying I should
use Tools -> Email Accounts... but this always give me an error
saying I should point to a default Location which is becoming tricky.

How do I point to that default location o the share? Please give a
step-by-step account. Thanks

Accessing PST files located on a network share is not supported.
You do know that having the email in a PST basically means it is removed from the Exchange server?

The only way I know to change the PST file location is to move it, then start Outlook. Outlook will then complain that it cannot find the file and ask you where it is.

However I repeat once again that storing PST files on a network location is not supported and could result in data loss.

How does Exchange 2000 & Outlook 2002 store files by default? I know Exch 2003 & Outlook 2003 uses cache mode (optioal) and stores the files centrally on the server so that it can be backed up.

In a default installation nothing is stored locally. Outlook connects to the Exchange server and pulls down what is required. With laptop users you would configure Offline Folders, which is basically what cached mode is.
