    Ok, long story :D I won't bore you with the details

    I need to know where my emails are stored on my pc?
    Part of my huge list of problems is that after a defrag, the pc has mis-placed my emails :mad:

    Does anyone know what file or folder they are in ?

    thanks

    What email client are you using. MS Outlook? Outlook Express? Mozilla?

    OK open outlook/tools/options/maintenance. (from memory) Look for the store folder. That will tell you where they are stored. But if they were there they should be showing up. :confused:

    Hipster Doofus, thank you !!!

    i was sent a very nasty virus from my "friend", which was disguised as a program i'd asked for. He thought i'd see the funny side, but it done a lot of damage

    i ended up sticking in my XP cd and upgrading to set everything back to normal.
    now xp has given me a new identity
    my old one was simply Mark
    now i have one called Mark.home

    i managed to go into documents and settings, have a rake around and copy most of my old stuff like favourites etc.

    but i couldn't find my emails anywhere:mad:

    I've got them back now !!!:D :D

    Cheers from Edinburgh, and thank god for the time difference !!
