    Where are emails stored on my Computer

    I'm looking for the actual folder(s) where emails in my inbox, outbox, etc.
    are stored. Is there some way I can access that folder which I assume is
    somewhere on my hard drive? I have Vista Windows Mail.

    Thanks,

    bj

    Hi Bj,

    The emails are located here:

    C:\users\(your user name)\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Mail\Local Folders

    They are the ones with the ".eml" file extension.
