How to move IMAP personal folder(*.pst)?

How to move the IMAP personal folder (*.pst) ?

In order to move the IMAP personal folder (*.pst), you have to first close Outlook, then make sure Outlook is not listed in Task Manager, Processes tab, a few minutes after you close it.

Steps to move the IMAP personal folder (*.pst)

  1. Open the profile (Control panel, Mail) and click on Data files.
  2. Select the IMAP acct and click Open Folder to open the folder containing the PST.
  3. Move the PST to the desired location. Do not rename the file; Outlook creates a new file in the default location if you try to rename it—you can only move it.
  4. Switch to the Data Files window and double click on the account’s data file.
  5. Now you’ll get the ‘can’t find’ error which can tell outlook where to find it.
  6. Close the dialogs and you are ready to restart outlook.
