It might depend on the version and the configuration (using Exchange server or not) of Outlook, but as far as I know you can define personal folders and just drag and drop your mails into them. Each set of folders is a different pst-file.
Hope this helps.
I would like to empty all my Outlook XP (not Express) email messages and start with a "clean" slate, keeping all my rules, contacts, email address etc. I have thousands of old messages and it would take hours to sort and delete the ones I need from the ones I don't, or to set up new rules/accounts/contacts. The current file is huge and I think that is causing some problems.
I know there are backup and archive utilies built into the program, but they seem like they are hard to access once you do that. I have to refer back to old emails once or twice a week, so I need the files to be accessible and searchable, and not have to go through a long restore/delete process each time. Yet I don't want them as part of my current .pst file either.
Is there some easy way to do this? Like the "SAVE AS" feature in Word that allows you to create a copy of the file with a slightly different name that you can simply open when you need it? Thanks! Gail
