If by find and recover you mean fix a corrupt or damaged mailbox follow the links given by nobus.

If by find and recover you mean locate a mailbox on one computer and copy/"recover" it to another then go to "Start", select "Search" and search for "*.dbx" no quotes.  (Be sure you have hidden files and folders visible on your computer also or at least specify you want to search hidden files and folders in the search).  Usually the files with the largest sizes are your Inbox and Sent Items folder.  From the search results you can right click and choose "copy" and then do a "paste" into whatever location you can readily access them and then transfer them to Flash drive or burn to CD.  Be sure to note what folder the .dbx files were stored in and copy them to the same folder on the new PC.

Apologies if I misinterpreted your question and this is not what you were looking for!

Good luck!
