In WIN 98 SE I could find Folders in Outlook express in C:\Windows\Application data\Identities\Folder (lots of numbers)\Microsoft\Outlook Express.
Does anyone know here WIN XP stores the same sort of files for OE 6.
Thanks

Toby,

Something like

C:\Documents and Settings\{username}\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities\{somelongnumber}\Microsoft\Outlook Express

Cheers, Babe.

Toby,

BTW - you can find the exact file store from within Outlook Express by clicking TOOLS | OPTIONS | MAINTENANCE | STORE FOLDER
(you may have to scroll left/right within the Store Location shown to see the full path)

Cheers, Babe.

Thanks.
That link within Outlook is handy, but I still couldn't see the file until I enabled "view hidden files" in explorer, (new install of XP)
