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.
