I know where Outlook express keeps all the emails and stuff, but where does Outlook hide them? I need ot recover them from aN xp install that has been corrupted somehow and locked me out completely.

I might have my dork hat on today, but what do you mean by "hide them?" Are you referring to a place other than this:

C:\Documents and Settings\User Name\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook

On mines it's

C:\Documents and Settings\furball\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities\{7157B548-C0D7-4518-AF67-5853E8FE361C}\Microsoft\Outlook Express

Simple way to get there...

go to a command prompt

do a cd \ (to get back to the root directory)

do a dir /s inbox* > inbox.txt

close you command prompt

now open the inbox.txt file you just created and copy and paste that into your run bar. Should take you right to that directory to copy and pasate as you please.
