Do you mean Outlook?

c:\users\%username%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook

AppData and subfolders are hidden files so you need to enable show hidden files.

Hello, I am assuming that you are using Outlook 2007.  Are you able to log onto Outlook?  Hopefully you are able to log in with your account because when you are in Outlook, go to Tools --> (Email Tab) and then look at the bottom of that window and look where your Personal Folders are located.  It will provide you with a "Change Folder" button along with the current path of your PST/OST files.

If you have Outlook 2007 go to the menu "File", "Data File Management".  That will tell you where your data files are held.

I forgot to mention that if the above does not work, then you could always do a search for all OST files by putting in *.OST in the search.

I'm sorry its Windows Mail. I guess they changed it from Outlook Express.
C:/Users/(MyName)/AppData/Local/Microsoft/Windows Mail/Local Folders

Apparently, the *.dbx files are non existant in Vista. Each individual message is now saved as a separate .eml file.
