I have a user with winXP and office 2007, she is having problems with where emails are being delivered, so I went to account setting, and in the email tab, it just shows where emails are being delivered.
so before I messed up her account, I looked at my test computer - it is a win7 with office 2010, but in the account setting for outlook 2010, there is a "change folder" button in the email tab.
Since I don't have this in 2007, on her computer, I thought I would close outlook, open the mail control panel. Go to the email tab, and remove the account there. Then, add the account again.
To be on the safe side, I made another test computer and recreated her environment, ( winXP with office 2007 ) and this worked fine, but before I do this on her computer....
Has anyone run into something like this? and are there pitfalls that you have come across?

Usually, you can change the location of the PST files via Account Settings -> Data Files tab -> Settings for the appropriate account. This page covers that and also a way to change the setting in the registry (HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Outlook\), which I would double-check in your scenario:
