You cannot completely remove IE or OE from windows xp though it is just hidden from your machine after uninstallation.

Go to My computer --> tools --> folder options --> view --> and check "Show hidden files and folders"

Search for *.DBX files. There should be Inbox.DBX , Sent Items.DBX , Outbox.DBX etc ..
These are the files that contain all your emails.

The above is the easiest way.
If that doesnot work , try these
