How to restore e-mail from archive?

I use Microsoft Outlook 2000 and currently I need to restore an already archived e-mail.

How does that work?

I do see where the file archive.pst is located but I don't find a way to browse it.

Open outlook
go to file --> archive
A box will open .
At the bottom you should see "Archive file"
Check the path and name of the archived file. BY default it is
archive.pst

Note down that path ..

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

Now go to that path and make sure that archive.pst or whatever file name you had given during archive is there

Now go to file --> open --> outlook data file in outlook and browse to that PST file
check now if that PST file is shown as archived folder in outlook and see if you can access whatever you wanted to access

Beginning at the start in the Folder list I see now an Achive folder with two subfolders in it: Deleted items and Sent items. No seperate folder there for the Inbox. Outbox etc.

Below this is the Outlook today main folder, containing all the other folders like the Inbox, Out-box etc.

Where should the archived folder containing the archived emails from the Inbox appear?

I donot think you had arhived all the folders correctly . If you had archived all the folders then all the sub-folders like inbox, outbox should appear below the name "archived folder"

I still think you have not archived all the folders

Try autoarchive and see

I have archived the other folders now and all appears as you say now.
Apparently the mails I was looking for were noit archived but gone alltogether :(

Nevertheless thanks for the explanation on how it works!
