Can one (or even two) inform me as to where to find my mail folders in Outlook 2010. I've transferred them over from Eudora to Outlook 2010 with Aid4Mail quite flawlessly I might add (to csv files) but stuff my leg into two teakettles if I can find them.

I'll appreciate help with this one. Thanks!
I think I can answer this one easily enough - in Outlook 2010, the data files (pst files) should be in My Documents\Outlook Files. That is the default location for Outlook 2010 with new profiles.

It's possible aid4mail might use the old location of %localappdata%\microsoft\outlook - if you use Windows 7, paste the bolded text into the address bar of windows explorer and press enter to jump to it. It will take you to C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook

If you use Windows XP, the secret location is %USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook - or C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook
Thanks for the reply Larry. I'm using Windows 7 Home Premium. Permit me to edit this. I've not found in the directories my mailboxes from Eudora per se. I have found my e-mail address with a pst on the end of it. If this is where my mailboxes are, then it would be what I'm looking for.

What I'm thinking about, is I should back those up perchance I should have the great joy sometime of ever re-installing Outlook 2010.

Anyway, let me know what you think. Thanks!
Obviously, this seems to be one of those stickers that no one has a reply for or there is no reply. Anyone reading this with the same problem might be wise to gallop off to another forum or better yet, speak to someone they know that's got a clue about Outlook. :-}
We know where they are supposed to be - but when you upgrade from older versions, other software, or use 3rd party software, they may not be where we expect them to be. We can't look at your drive, so we can only go by where Outlook normally puts the pst files. We don't live online 24/7, waiting for questions. I know I have a life outside of the internet and I'm sure Diane does too.

Did you open the pst file that has your address as the file name? That should be the pst file that Outlook created when you created your profile. Whether Aid4Mail put the eudora mail there or somewhere else is unknown - my crystal ball can't see what it did.

Did you read the Aid4Mail help? Did it say what pst file it uses?

Since you use Windows 7, the two default locations for pst files is at %localappdata%\microsoft\outlook and in My Documents\Outlook files. The microsoft\outlook location is the old default - used by outlook 2007 and older, plus IMAP, Hotmail Connector and Exchange server. Pst files you create or ones outlook creates for POP3 accounts go into the My Documents\Outlook files folder. If the pst files in those locations don't have the missing Eudora mail, you need to contact Aid4Mail and ask where it put the mail.
