I'm running the Office 2010 Beta and have just noticed where Outlook now places the Outlook data file, No longer is it buried deep within the user profile, but in My Documents\Outlook files.
Very convienient and easy to manage, so they will be removing this feature before going gold then
ooooh! That's good to know, hoo-blooming-rah is all I can say! When I set anyones Outlook up I always manually move it to a folder called PST or Outlook then I could find it easier for backup purposes but glad to see MS have done that at last
I have been using this aswell thinking its quite good - one this that is annoying is that you cannot turn off the conversational linking for all folders you have to do it on each individually ( as far as i can see and after what google said). and also if it was clever enough not to group all emails with no subject together as we all know what teachers are like!
Too little too late, Zimbra has it beaten all ends up!

It is sensible I agree, but you can just move the PST with Outlook 2003 for example, then point it to the new location. Is the max PST size going to get any bigger?
PST files are famously not supported on non-local drives (Personal folder files are unsupported over a LAN or over a WAN link). I'm wondering what will happen with Outlook 2010 when My Docs is redirected to a network location. Will it still create PST files there?
Ask the Performance Team : Network Stored PST files ... don't do it!

Uh huh .. and AFAICT they can do some incredible magic shrinking tricks when they run up against quotas.PST files are famously not supported on non-local drives
The difficulty for me: Even when you assume there's an Exchange, you still really need the archiving to a PST bit to get around lots of people's inability to spring clean their mailboxes.
I have done it, pointing to H:\ for example which is mapped and the PST files were about 120MB and it worked with no slowdown. Any more than a few users and you'd be better off setting up Exchange anyway!PST files are famously not supported on non-local drives
You're all missing the most important thing about 2010... you can make it black!
