Default 2 data files with same address....

When looking at the acct. settings for my data files, I noticed I have two
Personal Folders showing, each with the the file name:
Outlook.pst\Documents and Settings\Lenovo User\Desktop\Company Name. One is
marked default.

When I click on the "open folder" button, I get the same file in the above
referenced folder on my desktop.

Why would I have two and should one be deleted? BTW, I use OL2007 and Win
XP Pro SP 3.

Thanks-

This would indicate a corruption in your mail profile. You can recreate it
via the Mail applet in Control Panel.
See http://www.howto-outlook.com/faq/newprofile.htm

As an alternative you could also try the methods mentioned here;
