How to change OL 2007 storage location?

I would like to move my mail archive off drive C into another partition.  Is 
there a way to do this and can folders be placed in separate files such that 
OL 2007 can use them as working files?
Thanks, John.

Yes, just move the .PST file and then change the account settings for the 
mailbox that points to it. But its all or nothing, all of the folders under 
the same email account have to point to the same .PST file, you can't have 
the INBOX and SENT in one .PST and the CALENDAR, CONTACTS and TASKS in 
another. You can have the .PST's for each email account in different 
locations.

Thanks for your help David,  so do I understand that .PST files contain 
packed folders that only OL 2007 can access?

Correct. Only outlook can open the pst files.

Security and encryption issues when trying to convert to 2007
