Recently lost the system snd reinstalled Win XP were it kept all my files. However I had to reinstall programmes such as office etc. Would my old emails be kept anywhere or are they lost for ever? Using MS outlook

Yes

Search for hidden files and folders for something like outlook.pst (or *.pst).

Or check your backup.

Just a thought did you do a format then reinstall or just a repair?

ICF i thought I was doing a format but it must have been a repair. Although i had to load all my programmes back on, my folders and files were all intact. That was why I was wondering if my old emails would be anywhere.

Search for .DBX files if you are using Outlook express
