I'm about to format my old PC. I need to backup the file that contains all of my e-mails within Office XP. What is the name of the file, and where is it located? Thanks in advance!

Tools > Options> Maintaintance Tab I think has the folder store. I cant say for definite though as its been about a year since I used MS Office

File > Data File Management.

I think the default location would be c:\documents and settings\%user%\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
