Outlook Archive

I've got a user that was archiving his email out on our network.  I moved the archive pst from the network to his HD when he began having problems with it.  Doing that corrected the problems he was having with that archive pst.

The problem now is Outlook still tries to archive to that network folder.  I've changed the location of the archive folder within the options for Outlook.  I've removed the archive folder from the Data File Management screen.  So, my question is why is it still trying to arcive there and how can I stop it from doing it?  Is there somewhere that Outlook caches this old information that I may need to remove.

BTW...this user is running XP Pro on a Sony laptop and this is Outlook 2003.

I didn't get a chance the remove the profile and then add it back until Thursday morning.  I wanted to wait until today to make sure that the pesky archive folder didn't show back up on Monday morning, which is didn't.  

So, this worked...thanks for the help!
