Changing location of .ost files


B

Brossyg

I use Outlook 2003 to get mail from an MSN mailbox. Outlook created a .ost
file in the default location (docs & settings) for the MSN emails and I need
to move the .ost file to another location. I cannot find how to move it. I
have tried using the ForceOSTPath registry entry, but it does not change it
to the new path (I think this works only for Exchange-related .ost files).
MSN are mapi accounts, not Exchange.

How can I change the location of the .ost file in this case?

I don't believe it's possible.
