How To Change the Name of an Email Archive

When you open an email archive (pst file) in Outlook, it uses a vague name such as “Archives” or “Personal Folders” by default. You can change this name to help organize and identify different email archives.

  1. Right click on the name of the email archive you want to change in the Navigation pane.
  2. Click on Data File Properties (Properties for… in older versions)
  3. Click on Advanced
  4. In the Name field, type in the name you want to appear in the Navigation pane.
  5. Click OK twice to complete the change.
