I am using Microsoft Outlook 2000, and I would like to know

What folder does Microsoft Outlook store emails?


Thanks

In Windows 98 it's:

C:\WINDOWS\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook Express

Perhaps it's the same.

It is supposed to be at C:\Windows\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook\Outlook.pst

Do a search in C drive for *.pst

I can only find archive.pst and it is 136 mb

Would that have all the emails in it? or just older ones?

hi mejoebloggs,

If you go into Outlook 2000 and have the the Outlook shortcuts bar open on the left then right-click on the Outlook Today icon.

Click Properties, on the General Page click on Advanced. In the next window under Path is the location of your Outlook PST file.

If you don't have the shortcuts bar click View and select Outlook Bar and follow instructions as above


Cheers, babe.
