I use Outlook 2002 and want to map my Personal Folder to a local drive on my computer rather than the current network drive which I only have access to if I boot up on a corporate LAN. How do I do this?

Greetings, djwburr !

Create a new PST file and save it to a Network drive
http://cs.its.uiowa.edu/exchange/pstfiles.shtml

Be careful.  Microsoft does not support use of Personal Folder on network drive.  There are many reads and writes to the file.  Corruption could occur if the network connection drops.

Best wishes!
