It may depend on which mail application but likely here:  C:\Users\userrname\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Mail

The email application is the one that comes with Windows 10.

We tried that folder and though it has data, the dates are over a year old (so we assume that is not the folder).  We are currently using the apps and receiving emails to-date, which of course the folder location of Windows  10 mail apps should also display today dates.

Any other folder to look into?

Went thru the link, and again outdated files; non are from today, not even the emails we receive from Expert Exchange were here.

I checked in that folder and it is today's date. That is where Windows Mail App keeps its email.

Did you check another user name?  It could be under another user than you checked.

We are in the username that we want to work with.

To make sure,
- we went into Windows 10 Mail apps
- created and sent an email to ourselves (with images and attachment)
- received said email
- clicked on it and opened it

At each stage of the email, we went thru your link and did the same steps and still sames contents in files and dates.

Maybe there is another folder? (please note we followed the link both options thoroughly)

Did you move the folders? Or did someone?  That is where Windows Mail is stored by default and the date is current on my machines.

Did you relocate into Documents ?  That is where Outlook stores email.

Yes u r correct... just copy your %localappdata%\Comms\Unistore and opened the same folder as john, but now it has today's data; most probably it didn't refresh (we haven't used it for a while but installed).

Ok guys thanx!
