Thanks for the comments for locating .pst files and how to copy them. They helped a lot. Now I have a different problem.

How do you empty the .pst file once you've copied its contents to another file for backing up to CD? Deleting the emails in MS Outlook and emptying the deleted files doesn't seem to empty the .pst file. And I want to copy groups of differnet emails (.pst files) to different files for backing up to a CD. Does anyone know how this can be done? How to empty the .pst file between copying defferent groups of emails? Thank you.

Since you now know where the file/folders are kept on the hard drive, you can simply delete them; this will also delete the current contents of the files. When you next launch the application, the folder will be created automatically.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
