Hi Anyone,

Dummy me downloaded my email to Outlook Express 6 on a rarely use OS without leaving a copy on the server.

I can easily cut and paste the email messages to my regularly used Microsoft Outlook on my regularly use OS, however, dummy me can't find where the email messages are kept for nothing.

I searched the rarely used OS over and can't find them any where.

I've checked the Options to see if the storage folder was listed, it is not. I'm at a loss.

Can anyone please tell me where I may find the email files, in what folder?


John :thumbsup:

Just to clarify. You downloaded E-mails (successfully) to a seldom used computer using OE, and the E-mails are not found in the OE Inbox?
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
