outlook express files whereabouts

I am sure this one has been asked before but I cannot find it in the archive, so my apologies if this is the case. My hard drive gave up this week and I have successfully restored everything from a tape backup except my outlook express messages. I cannot find them. I am running windows xp home edition, could one of you experts point me in the right direction

It's possible to change the location of the message store from the default mentioned by VoG™, so a simple way of finding the Outlook Express messages is to do a search for *.dbx .
