    Post Location of email messages

    A friend, using Microsoft Mail, has downloaded an email that seems to have siezed up her mail program. Whenever she tries to open MMail now, she gets the "illegal operation" message and has to shut it down. The offending email took a lot of attempts to retrieve, and once it arrived the problem started. Is there a way to find the individual message, say using Windows Explorer, and delete it? Just where does M'soft Mail store the messages it downloads? I use Outlook Express myself and I'm wondering where it keeps the messages too. Browsing with Explorer it's not obvious at all.

    As far as I know they are compressed folders that you cannot open externally, that is why you should save any attachments that you want to keep seperately as when you delete the email that goes to.

    But I do not know the name of the file.
