I have a problem with a Outlook 2007. I am in Denmark and we use a Danish outlook. One friend has copied an English version to her outlook 2007 using a .pst. Now we have the English as default but we want the Danish to de default. I cannot make a .pst only containing the Danish folders.
How can I delete the English default folders and replace them with the Danish?
Or make the Danish the defalut and then delete the English.

All mails have been moved to the Danish inbox, meetings have been moved to the Danish calender and so on.
The problem is: she writs mails from the Danish inbox but the sent mail is saved in the English Sent folder. '
When she receives a meeting invitation the meeting is saved in the English Calender and not to the Danish kalender.
Need advice to change the default to be the Danish folders.
Regards Lena

Have you tried closing outlook and restarting it using the /resetfolders switch? /resetfoldernames might fix it too, but you have the folders, just in both EN and Danish.

Yes. It does not help.
The problem is that the English calender, sent folder, draft, contacts is default.
It's a real mess with both English and Danish folder.
What language is Windows? I'm assuming you have both Danish and English languages installed but English is set as default? If everything is Danish, i think the switch would work, but something is making Outlook think English is default.

If you add a new pst to the profile and set it as default, what happens? If it turns out the way you want, you can either import the old pst or move stuff from the old pst to the new.
You mean import an "empty" .pst file and then import the real .pst and one by one import the right folders?
Windows is Danish.
Change of .pst and move folders helped. And reset the right .pst as default.
Thank you.
