Lost E-mail Messages

Running Windows 2000.  I installed Novell Client for Windows 2000 so that I could log on to our network.  Now I can't retreive my old mail. I deleted my user account as they recommended.  Now I can log on to our network and use directory services.  The problem is that I can't find my e-mail messages from before this installation.  Were they deleted with my user account.

If they had you right click on my computer, select properties and go to the user profiles tab to delete your profile.  Then your data was deleted.

If they didn't have you do that, try searching for *.pst files.  (Note: You do have to configured Windows Explorer to show you all hidden/system directories.  Outlook by default stores *.PST files in a hidden/system directory under \documents and settings.)
