I had to delete everything on my c drive and reinstall windows.  Before I did that I  made an indentical copy on my E drive hoping to get whatever I needed later.  So far I have been unable to find my old address book in netscape or my old e-mail messages.  I have been able to find my internet bookmarks but yet to find the addresses.  Any suggestions?  Does anybody know where Netscape writes and
saves these files too?

Wherever you install Netscape (version 4) you must create a user profile to start using the program. After asking for this preferences and settings it creates a folder called "users" inside its own folder, it is here that it creates a subfolder with your name on it (the name of your profile). This folder has others inside called "archive", "cache", "mail" and "news". If you copied all the files, you just have to restore all the files inside the old "mail" folder to the new one and restart Netscape to get al your mail messages back.
Your address book and your bookmarks go inside the user profile named folder, copy the old files to the new folder and restart Netscape.
