Create an mail archive folder within personal folders in Outlook 2003

I am trying to create an archive folder called "Outlook Mail Archive" within a user's "Mail folders" list (under Personal Folders) in Outlook 2003 linked to a .pst created on our organisation's network.

The data file is present on  but no subsequent folder for archiving appears within the "Personal Folders" area as expected.

What step have I missed in order to create a folder so Inbox items can be moved to it, the user in question is having issues with mailbox size limits being maxed out.

You have to do a File -> Open Outlook Data file (and find the new .PST file you created)  in order to have it appear in the Personal Folders area.

Hope that helps.
Let me clarify PST files over a network are not recommended or supported
Now on the part of PST/Archive, refer
Let me know
