outlook 2003. i have an archieve folder set up called archive.pst saved in this location
"C:\Documents and Settings\smithb\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook\archive.pst"

if i go to file, then file data mangement the file is listed in here and i can successfully view it on the left hand side under "archive folders"

if i go to tools, options, other, autoarchive under the "move old items to:" section i have the same path that is configured in file data mangement
"C:\Documents and Settings\smithb\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook\archive.pst"

everytime i shutdown my pc and come in the next morning, open up outlook i have to setup my archive folder again by going to file data mangement etc.  how can i get outlook to remeber this, so i dont have to set it up everytime?
