Outlook 2010–Storing all your emails in a local pst, and using exchange as your primary calendar

Chances are you have a finite space for emails, whereas there is almost limitless space on your pc to store your emails.

It is actually possible to store all your emails in a local pst, and keep things like your calendar and tasks on exchange so that you can sync your events.

 

To do so, first ensure that you close outlook. Then goto Control Panel –> Mail. Open the default profile.

 

Click on the email tab, and then click on the Change Folder" button.

 

Which will give you the following prompt.
