    I just did a detect and repair in office xp 2002 and now all my e-mails are gone

    When I opened my e-mail account I had to reset the acount settings and when I did there were no e-mails from before There was a pop up that said i could import them back but I could't figure it out :confused: :(

    Are they gone

    If anyone interested i fixed this by searching for .pst files(outlook files are kept in these file types) then imported the contents of the old outlook file(it was still there) to the new one and got all my e mails and contacts back

    you beat me to it :D

    Outlook emails are stored in the personal.pst file. Outlook Express however is different I think. Finding those are harder.

    Marking as solved.
