    I have done a search but can't find this. I used to know where to look but can't remember ight now. Question is:
    Where are emails stored in XP? When I look at files using "Explorer" where are they kept?

    Thanks and Have a Great Day

    It might be easier to create a new folder ....
    Open the inbox .. and drag the Emails you want to save > to the new folder.

    You can read the eml files in the new folder .. or drag them back to the inbox.

    If you have multiple Identities, search will find multiple folders with a different GUID part (Example GUID:{B64D48EF-91FC-4570-8583-6AD2EA77D821}
    If for some reason you need to determine which folder is for which Identity, you can check that in Outlook Express:
    For each Identity:
    Click Tools | Maintenance
    Click the Store Folder... button
    The path is displayed in the box.
    Click in the box then use the arrow keys to scroll.
    Or, click at the very left, press CTRL+SHIFT+END to highlight all
    Press CTRL+C to copy to clipboard.
    Then paste into Notepad.
    You can also paste that path into Windows Explorer or the Run box to open the folder.

    You can also change the path here as well.
