Find, copy, or back up e-mail on your own computer

E-mail messages flying over a computer

You see messages in Outlook on your own computer. But, are they actually on your computer or are they somewhere else?

Psssst ... where Outlook stores your e-mail and other data is not a secret. But then again, just where that data is stored may not be obvious either. Although you see e-mail on your computer, it's not always stored there.

This lesson will help you find out where your messages, contacts, and other items are being stored. It will explain how you can store messages on your own computer, if you want to. And it'll show you how to make copies that you can give to someone else or store somewhere other than your own computer.
