Using a dbx viewer to show someone there emails on an old drive i cam across the above whilst locatig the OE files, I was curious as to what it was and meant ? And can i expect this number to be the same regardless of the computer i am carrying out this task on ? (Gut feeling is NO)

Try putting the complete number into google and see what comes up.

it is the name of the 'Identity Folder' within which your Outlook Express emails are stored.
To see it/them on your computer:
First make hidden files and folders visible
My Computer > Explore > Tools > Folder options > View > and tick the box in Advanced Settings for 'Show hidden files and folders'

My Computer > Local Disk (C:) > Documents and Settings > [your name*] > Local Settings > Application Data > Identities > {31faeo7o-15cf-447b-8ef7-.. or similar > Microsoft > Outlook Express > [and here you will find your *.dbx files]

It's a fair bet it's a registry key, that possibly identifies the user. Can't be sure though.

If it is, it will of course be unique.
