Windows Mobile 5.0 Text Message Store

I have a cingular 3125 mobile phone, which operates on a Windows Mobile 5.0 platform. One nice feature of the phone is that the memory is excellent, and I have accumulated 6 months worth of sent/received text messages without any obvious reduction in performance. I have some very interesting conversations within these message, and would like to somehow transfer them out of my phone to my computer (using activesync's explore option). My question is, therefore, where does my Windows Mobile 5.0 device store the text messages?

I have been able to find the IMAP emails in the //Windows/Messaging/ folder. I have not been able to locate the message stores for text messages, however.

Any help is greatly appreciated!
Thanks!

My system reports the following (if helpful):
OS: Windows CE
Version: 5.10 (build 195)
Processor: ARM
Storage Memory: 73.49 MB (21.63 MB Free)

Thank you for the address for the general user's guide. The guide only seems to give information related to basic operation of the unit, and did not specifically help with this problem. Your help was appreciated, nonetheless.

hmm hard to say sounds like some of the dll files wont installed prob, best bet is to reinstall XP again, or better still get Vista and install that
or check your event log
make sure the themes service is set to automatic
go into start> run > type 'services.msc' > press enter
search for 'themes'
double click
make sure startup type is set to automatic
i'd check that 1st befor reinstalling
good luck

I think the text msg are stored in a database called pmailmsgs which can only be seen from activesync and not viewed on the phone (I cant see mine on my MDA). My version of active sync will not allow me to copy the database.

The database folder is located at the highest level on explorer
