On OE under XP can't access Accounts on Tools menu

  One Old Git 15:13 26 Jan 2011

I am using OE running under XP. When I click on the Tools menu, I can get all the usual tools except the Accounts which is not showing. I think there is a fault with one account but I can't access it to check or to copy it to other email software (Thunderbird). It also means I can't set up any new accounts. I used to have access to Accounts at one time but not now. I have managed to find a folder with .dbx files but that appears to be storgae for past emails only.

If someone knows where I can find a folder where I can access the account details or can suggest what else I can do, I will be most grateful.
