Windows 7: Windows Mail messages location??

Windows Mail messages location??

Hi and thx for your help...

My wife's computer just died and I had previously "activated" Windows Mail on her Windows 7 OS with the help of a guide in this forum. Now I need to recover her email messages without the ability to do a Import/Export recovery. Can I find and move her message files over to Win Mail on another Win 7 computer?? Where are they and how do I do it?? I have access to her HD mounted in an external case now.

Any help is appreciated...
