    I was trying to compact and back up my email messages, I successfully compacted them but can't find them. I did a search with .dbx as help says but can not find where this back up is so I can transfer it onto a zip disk. Any ideas where to look?

    Make a new folder anywhere on your Hard Disk. Say for example, in C: make a new folder by the name of "MyMails".

    Now start OE, goto Tools > Options > Maintenance and click on Store Folder and now click on Change. Select the new folder that you have created.

    Close down OE. Start it and again close down.

    You will have all your mail folders in the new folder that you have created in C:. You don't need to search around. Now everytime you want to take backup of your mails, back up this folder.

    Hope this helps.
