But you need to know that there is a lot of traffic between Exchange and the database.

If you can give more information about what you want to do.

I am sorry that you ask you the wrong question. My question is "moving the email file to shared drive". I found the location "C:\Users\Username\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook", it has some email file in here. I think I can copy these files and move them to share drive.
Is that correct?

You are talking about Outlook 2003, Not Exchange Server 2003.

If that is the case then there is two scenario

1.- You are using outlook to connect to a Exchange Server using RPC.
In this case you shouldn't move the file (*.ost) because this file only contains an offline copy of the User Data, the real data is stored in the Exchange Server database.
 
2. You may be using Outlook to connect to a POP3 or IMAP account. In this case Outlook will create and use a *.pst file that contains all the User Data (Email, calendar, contacts, etc). and is safe to move it. See: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/291636/en-us?fr=1

Hope it helps.
