If you have installed Windows on a separate partition and want to keep it free of any unnecessary files, you can change the location of the mail and news files stored by Outlook Express to another partition.
Change the value of 'Store Root' in the key below to equal the new path.
Don't forget to move the 'mail' and 'news' folder from the old location to the new.

Key: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Outlook Express]
Value Name: Store Root
Data Type: REG_SZ
