Hi all,

I know this question must have been asked a number of times but i cant find the answer i need so if you know where it is please just point me in the right direction.

I followed some advice from this site about how to back up my email files by copying the files from c:documents and settings\username\applicationdata\microsoft\outlook\ then putting them back in when i reinstalled windows.

Thing is my emails are not showing up when i open up outlook. What have i done wrong?

any help would be great. I am running win XP and officepro 2003

Thanks in advance
