Changing Import Destination in Outlook 2007

When I import messages from Outlook Express 6 to Outlook 2007, all messages go to Outlook Mailbox, by default.

Is there a way to change the destination folder?  I want the messages to go to an archive folder (.pst file), not the Mailbox folder, because service provider has a size limit on the Mailbox folder, and the number of messages to import is quite large.

I've tried exporting from OE 6, and importing from Outlook 2007.  Neither approach allows me to select the destination folder.

Please help out.  Thanks!!

I believe if you go into 'Tools|Email Accounts', you can set the default delivery location for your Outlook account to be your archive folder. With this set, the import should go to the archive .PST file. when finished, you'll need to reset this back to your normal Inbox.
