outlook 2003

i had a computer go down due to a flood. The water made it up about an inch on the mainboard well the drives are fine and i put them in another computer and what i am needing is a backup of my mail.  Is it possible to get a backup of it without loading the outlook from that other drive?

Look for files named *.pst, they are outlook files. Sometimes there are also *.ost files if you are attached to an exchange server. The pst files you should look for in \Documents and Settings\UserName\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook\ if you didn't select another location when you originaly setup outlook.

there is not one but do you have to export a backup within outlook to get the pst file if so i do not have that option now.

Did you install Windows over your old drive. If you did you will need to try a recovery software. If you did not make sure you are searching all your drives and folders and all hidden files and folders.

No, the pst file should allways be there if you have outlook. What do you see in the directory i sent you above?
