What is the suffix for e-mail files in Microsoft Office Outlook 2007? When I used Outlook Express I could do a search for .dbx files and find them. Anyone know what to search for when using Microsoft Office Outlook 2007?

.pst - depends on what os your using too, easiest way to find them is to got to control panel (if 64bit select view 32bit control panel items) mail, and click data files, will show you the location of your files

default location on vista is C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook

not too sure on xp as memory isnt as good as it was

C:\documents and settings\username\Application Data\Local\Microsoft\Outlook - or something like that

You got local and application data backwards...

And I think it's 'local settings'

c:\documents and settings\username\local settings\application data\Microsoft\Outlook I believe. (Oh... and local settings is a hidden folder)

OS is XP Pro 32 bit BTW.

I found the .pst file by both the method posted above and through a search. It's one file though. I was hoping to find the files like they show up with Outlook Express (.dbx files)..... (inbox, sent, deleted, etc.) I guess that's not possible.

Thanks a lot for the help.

You should be able to export them from Outlook to .eml format if all else fails.

You can export directly to .pst and then import them again, no need to use .eml if going to be using Outlook again.

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

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
