i am currently running Exchange 2003 on windows 2003 R2 server.
we have clients using Outlook 2003 and outlook 2000.

My question is:  

Is there a way to configure the outlook "auto archiving settings so that  it redirects the .pst to a different location. I would like to have them all stored on a file server and use the unc path.
is this done by group policies if so can someone let me know where the settings are located.

My main concern is that i am able to implement this for all existing users. as well as new users.

PST files on a network location is not supported.
If you care about that data then you will not use a PST file, certainly not on the network file server.
