Hey guys, I need to retrieve my emails from Outlook Express from my old drive. My old machine died (see sig :D) and I couldn't attach the drive as a primary on my new one. (Kept restarting) I need to know where the files were stored so I can retrieved them.

Thanks in advance! :D

i got it now. For those interested, the location of the stored emails is:
C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities\{D8FAC464-B0C0-42F8-B1E4-47A30A66F6BB}\Microsoft\Outlook Express

Thanks for the feedback, I don't know how I missed this thread, you are a quick study!

For those not familiar with Outlook Express, the path is usually the same...

C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities\{D8FAC464-B0C0-42F8-B1E4-47A30A66F6BB}\Microsoft\Outlook Express

but the CLSID in red will change for each new Identity added and will be different on another machine.

I hope you saved the Folders.dbx file!

Opps, missed that bit. :) But like you said the path is the same. Usually if you are using one identity per windows account then it should be the only one there.

Quick study? I had to be I needed those emails :D Not just mine but my wifes (she's a freelancer and needed hers more :D)
