Mail stored in Entourage 2008
Posted on 2010-08-26
I have setup an Exchange account on my Entourage 2008 and when I open it, I could see two group, My mail domain and my computer. All my mails will be stored under the "my Mail domain" (upper group). I find these emails are physicall stored in a single Database file under /users/[username]documents/Microsoft User Data/office 2008/Indentities/Main Identity.
I have also converted all my old mails stored in .pst file into a format .mbx and I drag and drop the file under "My Computer" (the lower group shown in Entourage). However, I find those mails appear as a single files stored under [username]\library\caches\metadata\microsfot\entourage\2008\Main Identity\message.
To me, the mails stored in the upper group ("my mail domain") and the lower group ("My computer") seems to be different. Is it the way of storing those old mails ? Is it possible for all these old mails to store under a single database file in order to simply the restore.
Any comment ?
