OE6 email inbox file

I cannot for the life of me remember where Outlook Express 6 stores inbox email. I'm using XP Pro and need to back up some emails. Help!

C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities\{0393EDD6-C1-4391-6F59EB655}\Microsoft\Outlook Express

The identity folder may be different!

Cheers Taff. They certainly know how to bury things, don't they?!!

To find out where the folders are on your machine / account, in OE6 go to Tools, Options, Maintenance tab and click on Store Folder.

From Store Folder, you can also relocate the files to somewhere better (esp. for backup purposes). Somehere under My Documents isn't a bad place. That way, when you back-up your documents (which, of course, you do regularly), your emails will be back-ed up as well.
