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.
