  • Retreiving archived email when change computers.

    Outlook 2003. Exchange 2007. Windows 7 Ultimate. Dell Latitude laptop.

    User changed laptops, I set up email. Apparently she had set hers to archive and now new laptop doesn't show archived mesages from old laptop. Where are they? How do I get them to show up on new laptop?

    Search (including hidden files and folders) for a file called "archive.pst" in the depths of c:\users\%username%

    C:\Users\Specific User\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook
