Experts,
I have a pst file that I no longer want to use yet keep the information in a Temp directory. I would then like to set up a new pst file for incoming and send mail with defaults. Also, I need another pst file so I can transfer incoming and send mail to that new pst as a type of archieve. I would like to show both the new pst and the archived pst when Outlook opens.

It isn't a problem.
You can open several PST files in Outlook. To open or create a new PST file, just select file/New or Open and then select "Outlook PST file" and choose the directory and the name of the file.
If you want to change the PST where incoming message are store, select in Outlook  Tools/Options/Messaging/Messaging account, then in "data file" tab change the defaullt (In Outlook 2007 but it is similar in other version))

OK - I opened a message went to File and I still don't see the New/Open option? Outlook 2010 is what I'm using, if that helps.
