Close Outlook, go to Control panel, Mail and open the profile. Double click on the account on the Email tab and deselect use cached mode under the server name. Click More Settings, Advanced tab, Outlook Data File Settings. Disable offline use, then OK. Move the OST file to where you want it, go back into Outlook Data File Settings and browse to it. Close the dialog and enable cached mode before exiting the profile.
