Not sure, but you could always move them back....... think they need to be with Outlook........

If you went through Outlook Express:

Tools |Options | Maintenance | Store Folder | Change ...

Then you should have no problem with the files.

'Normally' the Outlook Express files (for Win XP) are in:
C:\Documents and Settings\{username}\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities\{guid}\Microsoft\Outlook Express
where {username} is your user logon name and {guid} is a long id number.

But as I said in my earlier post if you use the store location change feature you shouldn't have problems.

Cheers, Babe.
