    I have a third party software programme which looks into the OE inbox and
    copies the mail into itself... at least it used to with OE 6 and XP. With WM
    and Vista, it does not 'see' the inbox. Has the path changed? Is there
    another reason, perhaps, why the Winstock software can't see the Inbox?

    All help gratefully received.

  2. Windows Mail uses a different path and different storage method. Instead of
    storing all the Inbox messages in an Inbox.dbx file it stores them as
    separate EML files in an Inbox folder in the User Profile. To see where,
    open WinMail and go to Tools | Options | Advanced | Maintenance | Store
