    The default location of Windows Live Mail's Message Store is:

    Vista: %localappdata%\Microsoft\Windows Live Mail
    (C:\Users\<Windows user account>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Live Mail)

    XP: %userprofile%\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Windows Live Mail
    (C:\Documents and Settings\<windows user account>\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Windows Live Mail)
