I have a XP workstation that I'm running outlook 2003 on.  Our domain network controller crashed and we had to replace.  When I joined the new domain, I didn't have the option to copy any of the old profiles, so I can't find my outlook data.  All the backups are old.  So, does anyone know how I can retrieve my outlook data manually?  Please help I'm in trouble!!!

You surely got a PST file?

1- display all hidden file and folders in windows..

My computer - tools - folders options - view tab - click on view hidden files and folder. click apply, click on "like current folder" to apply this on your entire computer.

If you did not delete the profile, the PST is still in there somewhere under C:\Documents and Settings\user_name\

If you still cannot find it, after having configured windows to display all hidden files and folder, do a full search of your C drive for *.PST

it should come out with your file.
