Outlook Mails on old drive

Sorry - this is a stupid question - should be able to sort it, but after adding a new master drive (with new windows install on it), where can I find my old outlook express 6 emails on the old drive?

I don't use OE but I think the files you need to look for in search is *.DBX files When you know the path you can import them

C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities\{XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX}\Microsoft\Outlook Express

That's where they are stored by default.

Explore the old drive.

Thx Guys.

I'll have a look and let you know how I get on.

Thanks Powerless & woodchip! They were *.DBX files and in the place you describe. Found the files, copied them to the same directory on the new drives and BINGO! Old mail, including all my "reference" mails, back in place!

The wife can now get her (my computer - her mail!) mails back.

Now I can watch the footy and she can go through her mails!
