there are several files in an hidden application data.
go to "Tools->options->Maintenance->Store Folder"
find out where that folder is .

usually in something like documents and settings->temporary data
->application data->outlookexpress...

all else fails the files are extensioned .dbx and you can do a search in teh
document and settings folders.
