Hi Pete, I checked that location and all I could find was the setup for my email account.  I did some further checking and I see Outlook is not at all like Outlook Express with the various locations of mailboxes.  Express sets up multiple files with a "dbx" extension while Outlook combined all boxes in the Windows directory with a "pst" extension.  Thanks Pete for taking the time to help.

Thanks Pete, I wasn't acquainted with the slipstick link but it looks to be a great resource and I'm sure I'll use it in the future.  Even after working on PCs and their associated quirks for over 15 years now (my first was a TI-99/4A) everyday I learn just how much I don't know.

Sorry K but this was the first time I had asked a question and didn't realize the significance of the point and grading system.  I was also lazy (shame on me) and if I had searched further I would have seen the question had been previously asked and answered.  When I read Pete's answer I knew it wasn't applicable to my question in that it dealt with email account setup and not with locating where the "pst" file was located.  I meant no insult or slight to him and am certain that if I posed the question more clearly he would have picked up on what the problem was; therefore, give me a C for crummy writing and change Pete's to an A for effort, sincerity, and punctuality.

Thanks to all,
Tony
