    What has to be done for changing the default location of mail and news folders in Outlook Express installed into Windows XP?

    I have recently installed Outlook Express 6 into my PC running on Windows XP. Now, I need to change the location set as default for mail and news folders in Outlook Express. What are the steps for that?

    First of all, create back up for all messages in Outlook Express. Then, get into the Outlook Express app and click the ‘Tools’ option. After that, select ‘Options’ option from the pop-up menu. The next step required is to make a single click on ‘Maintenance’ option. Then, you need to click the ‘Store Folder’ option and set up a new directory. Quit the Outlook Express afterwards and open it again. The entire message folders will move to the new location set up earlier automatically. You must not transfer these files by yourself in any case as it will erase all messages.
