For outlook

Look for *.pst file searching in hidden folders
Mostly it would be found in
C:\Documents and Settings\{your profile name}\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook

Hi kfalandays / sunray_2003

Sorry I only looked at the second by accident and missed the first. But I wasn' t trying to be rude with a point offering. I thought 20 was ok for that question. However I agree with you about trying to be generous.

By the way I have now checked the first link and it does have exactly the info I was looking for.

Regards,

Maritimer
