    file extensions? (OE6.00, win2Kpro)

    hi all y'all!

    as usual, a quick question, if i may. what is the file extension for outlook express e-mails? i'm trying to find the darned thing so that i can save, backup, whatever you want to call it, all my husband's e-mails. he uses OE, whereas i use outlook. i figured that since outlook uses .pst that maybe OE might use .ost-----WRONG!!! <img src=/S/brickwall.gif border=0 alt=brickwall width=25 height=15>

    all i want to do is make sure that all of our e-mails are backed up, because just as sure as they aren't, one of us will need something. any help that you can send my way will be greatly appreciated. if i have asked this before, i apologize (even though i checked my posted before i even thought of asking.) <img src=/S/wink.gif border=0 alt=wink width=15 height=15>

    'til the next time, y'all take care and God bless.

    smiles-

    Hi Ladyleadfoot,
    Been a while since we "conversed" here.

    The files are .dbx types.
    If you follow this link it will give you some insight to backing up or copying these files.

    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!

    Outlook Express stores e-mail messages in .dbx files. By default, these .dbx files are located in the following folder:
    Documents and Settingsuser_nameLocal SettingsApplication DataIdentitiesidentity_numberMicrosoftOutlook Express

    The Outlook Express sent and received messages data is located at:
    XP = Cocuments and Settings{Username}Local SettingsApplication DataIdentities
    98 = C:WindowsApplication DataIdentities
