Just found out myself.

Go to File / Open / Open Outlook Data File and you can add the PST file.

Also, you can rename the PST by clicking on the PST and selecting "Active Folders Properties". That will get you to a dialogbox where you select "Advanced...". The advanced area will allow you to rename file.

Finally, you can drag the PST file to position it at the botton of live connections, if you wish.
