    You aren't going to get that kind of information from the Registry but you don't have to have windows running to extract the Outlook Express files (provided they did not get corrupted) and move and substitute them in a working system. Hooking that system drive up to another system or using a Linux boot disc with a windows file explorer utility will allow you to go to the most likely place to find the .dbx files (or just search for *.dbx) in the Documents and Settings>user name>Local Settings>Application Data>Identities>(weird alpha-numeric filename)>Microsoft>Outlook Express folder.

    If you find them, then on a working system you would run a new instance of OE (in a new user profile if needed) to create that default location and then displace the files in that pathway directory with those you recovered.

    Thank you, Byron -- However, I do not believe that login settings are stored within the .dbx files (which I have recovered). My understanding is that login information is stored at

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Account Manager

    If I am wrong, then this becomes easy: Use the recovered .dbx files. For the sake of this discussion, let's say that I am correct. The task, therefore, is to recover the information at that Registry key from a computer that will no longer boot into Windows.

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!
