Outlook 2010 Win 7 Home
The "Account settings\Data Files" window has a "set as Default" check box which is related to the data file selected in the body of the window which lists the database or mail account files folders.
It does not control the placement of new mail sent or received. This is controled by the Account Settings\Email window. In this window you can change the folder where the pop/smtp server sends new email. This can be verified by examining the file size of the various databases using Windows Explorer as new mail is sent and received.
So what is the purpose of the "set as Default" check box?
Also, I copied all of the database files to a sata raid array drive for backup. But I have noticed that the data file selected as the delivery location is being updated both on the sata drives and on the boot drive. Is this a documented function? I guess I need a better text.
be well be happy
