Your hole mailbox gets saved as a PST file, It can be moved from HDD to HDD or PC to PC.

Unhide the Files and Folders
Enable “show hidden files and folders”
Start >My Computer >Organize >Folder and Search Options > View Tab >Check Show Hidden Folders and Files and uncheck “Hide Extensions for Known File Types”.

Location for Scanpst.exe:
Windows7 64 bit: Start >My Computer > Program files(x86) >Microsoft Office >Office 12 >ScanPST.exe

This can be used to repair the pst file if you'd need it.

Thanks for the tip, it goes straight into my snippets file.

Tell me if I save the Outlook.pst file to another drive and call it backup or something.

Can I if need be copy the file back to C:\Outlook\Outlook.pst Of course moving or renaming the currant one, and then have access to the old backup Outlook.pst ?
