    Here's how you can find out the location of the data folders:

    In OE click Tools and Options. Move over to the Maintenance tab and click on the Store Folder button.

    TIP: You can also change the location of the folder for easy backup.

    C:\Documents and Settings\(usernae)\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities\(identity number)\Microsoft\Outlook Express

    You should have a maintenance tab ??? Anyway you have found the right location for it. If you want a decent tool for backing up outlook express and other bits and pieces such as internet explorer, take a look at

    It's a nice little tool
