View Full Version : Outlook Express

We have configured Outlook Express to check our pop mail account and our Hotmail (primary) account. However being an idiot I deleted the 'Identity'. I was able to set it all up again but had lost the 'saved & sent' e-mails etc. I would have thought they were stored somewhere on my hard drive, are they? If so can I retrieve them. Thanks.

I'm pretty sure, when you delete an identity, you lose email stored on your computer.

Hello George,
It does not look good, unless you have made a copy at some stage of your C:\windows\application data folder this folder is the default storage of your messages as well as address book etc.
You could also run a search for any .dbx folders, that will show any mail folders remaining, stored on your hard drive.
If you do find them you can then get them back by using the import from a stored directory function.

Good luck

Alan
