In what folder does outlook express 6 store mail on windows XP? I don't need to migrate or export, I just need to know the folder (or registry) location where the mail is stored by default.
%USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities\<GUID>\Microsoft\Outlook Express\*.dbx
Open Outlook, go to Tools> Options> Maintenance Tab >Store Folder button, highlight and copy the path, then open a run command and paste it in there, hit OK.
If OE will not open browse there manually using Windows Explorer
C:\Documents and Settings\\Application Data\Identities\\Microsoft\Outlook Express\
The string of numbers and letters folder will be a unique identifier for Each Identity in OE if they set up more than one Identity there will be more than one of these guid folders, one for each Identity.
It is probably in an OE6 or OES folder. This folder could be located in a directory similar to the way they have it setup in Windows 7 which is: C:\Users\\AppData\Local\Microsoft\OES or OE6\
-Hope this helps!
