View Full Version : Getting Outlook emails back

05-07-2002, 10:25 AM
I recently uninstalled Microsoft Office 2000, and Microsoft Outlook went with it, which is fine, but how do i find all the emails, so i can put them on another computer?

Has all the emails been deleted with the uninstall, or can i get them back?

Do a search for .dbx and .mbx and you'll find them.

Most of the time, outlook uses .pst extensions, once you find this you can import from most email programs

If you uninstalled, they will be a gone burger

If its any consolation :-( I lost everything on my computer last week (including all my business stuff) which I hadn't backed up. I've been spinning out so much over it, I'm still giddy!

It would be unusual for a .pst file to be removed during an uninstall as it is located in a different folder in the default setup.
For windows 2000, it will be at C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook
