  • Hi,

     

    To address this issue, it is better post in Windows XP forum since outlook express is a Windows XP feature.

    Meanwhile, based on my research, you can check the following locations.

     

    Address Book

    C:\Documents and Settings\#USERNAME#\Application Data\Microsoft\Address Book\USERNAME.wab

     

    Folder within your inbox, outbox, sent and newsgroups.

    C:\Documents and Settings\#USERNAME#\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities\{unique hex string}\Microsoft\Outlook Express\*.dbx

     

    Best Regards,

    Niki
