    Shouldn't I be able to find it by doing a search like this *.pst ? Cause I did and came up empty? Why is this, please?

    try C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook

    Where <user> is your username.

    I'm assuming WXP is the OS

    I looked there. It is not located there. The problem I am having is it is taken me 1 to 2 mins to open mail. Something is wrong and I can't figure out why.
