Finding old emails

  Allin 21:52 20 Oct 2005

I have had to replace my Hard Drive as the old one would not boot up.No problem,done that and everything is ok.I have put the old drive in as a slave,which works.I can access most of the files on there but I need to find a few of the emails that were on there.Does OE save emails onto your HD or not and if so where are they ?
Thanks for your help.

Do a search for *.dbx

In XP it should be at

C:\Documents and Settings\<User>\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities{GUID}\Microsoft
Outlook Express

Then IMport them into OE.

Go to File - Import - Messages. In the Wizard browse to the folder which contains the .dbx files (not to the files themselves) - and they should import OK.
