How do I force a network path for the default pst location in outlook 2007 through a registry setting

Is there a way to create and push out a registry setting that will force a network path and lock it down for the defualt pst location in outlook 2007.
We would like to force the path for archives for user to be their %homeshare%\outlookarchive\ location.

If there is, it will be in the office administrative templates somewhere, and you would push out using GPO.

Hi, conchuck.

There wouldn't be a group policy or registry setting for this since Microsoft does not support or recommend storing a .pst file on a network share.  They are too easily damaged.

Sorry ... Forgot to mention..

I know that microsoft does not support this.  They do not support it on Outlook 2003 either,  however there was a registry setting that allowed it.

I'd like to reiterate that its a bad idea to keep PST's on network shares.

Anyhow, registry settings are here: http://www.pctools.com/guides/registry/detail/1312

Those settings are not for Outlook 2007.  They do not work with 2007...

As BlueDevilFan says, don't expect too much, because this is an unsupported setup for good reason.

I just wish I could lock out the user from changing it to something else...
