    check the location C:\Documents and Settings\USER NAME\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook
    this is where your messages are stored, if not search for .pst files.

    If you find them you can import them into the system

    i did look at this folder but all i so was the folder at the present, all the previous folders that i had is gone and i also found a cleanup log file and i saw my folders in this cleanup log, so i guess it was actually deleted by the system. this is the second time that it happened. the 1st time i thought that there was a problem in my pc so i reformatted the hd. i just searched for the *.pst files and can't find it in my pc.
    thanks anyway... :(

    As far as I can remember, Outlook Express does not work with .PST files. However, Outlook does.
