Access E-mails received on a domain account

I have a PC that I am the administrator on.  I was on my companies domain for a few weeks using MS Exchange to get my E-mails but it was too cumbersome for me for various reasons.  I removed the domain from my login and now just login to my PC as an administrator.  I recently discovered that I now need some of these E-mails that I received when i was on the domain however when I go into outlook as an administrator, I only see E-mails from before I joined the domain/exchange and then after I made the change.  Before I completely removed my computer from the domain I use to be able to just log back into the domian as my domain user, forward the E-mails to myself, log off and then receive them on my administrative login.  My question is... Is there any way to get to the E-mails that I received on the domain without having to rejoin the domain again?

For what it's worth, I believe this may be the data file it's stored in.  Archive1.pst in C:\documents and settings\my.name\local settings\application data\microsoft\outlook.  my.name is the logon ID I used to access my computer while on the domain.

Thanks

Greetings:

Can you just open the data file in Outlook and see if those are the emails?  Or are you getting an error?  What is the error?

If you are getting a permissions error, you may have to take ownership of the file and than grant yourself access.

It doesn't show anything in my inbox.  When I would log on to the domain, There was about 5 weeks worth of Emails there.

Than all that stuff is probably still in the mailbox on the server.


Is that five weeks worth of email in the archive pst file you mentioned above?

Oh I see so you think that it's on the server rather than locally on my PC?  I guess since we use exchange thats very possible but I thought it automatically downloaded to my PC.  And No, The inbox is empty when I look at that pst file.  No E-mails at all.

Greetings:

Delivery is usually not automatic to a PST unless you set it that way.  That would be under Tools ... email accounts.  At the bottom of one of the windows there is a "Deliver new email to the following location: and you can set it to go to the PST instead of the mailbox.

The mailbox is a bit more mobile, unless you use network based PST's which is not supported by M$.
