Hi,

I'm at work on someone elses computer and they had autoarchive set up to get rid of their e-mails as soon as they've looked at them, and I didn't know.

Now all of MY e-mails have dissapeared in the .pst file and I can't seem to get them back...

Any ideas?

Here is what I found.

From Outlook's
File menu, choose Open then Outlook data file. Browse to the Archive pst
file and you'll find all your items there. If you don't know where it
is, then from the Fie menu again, choose Archive and the location will
be shown on the dialogue box.

But you have to have agreed in the first place to let Outlook auto
archive your items; it won't do it without your permission. Don't look
for that archive filel if you never agreed to auto archiving because
there won't be one in that event.

Thankyou so much! Found it..

I'd found the file before and tried to open it, but just by going through Windows Explorer.

For some reason it wouldn't let me open it that way...

At leat i know now.

Tom.
