Recovering e-mails from account after leaving domain

Hi all, a few PC's were removed from a domain (server 2003) in one of our local offices. The reason being that it was a small office and didn't want to be depending on the server for log-in's etc. (each person has their own dedicated PC) The pc's were taken off the domain and put into a workgroup. Now each PC has a single user account for each person. Problem is that I've been asked 'where the email has gone' (They didn't realize removing from the domain would remove the account) From what I can see, the PC's were running either Outlook/Outlook Express/Windows Live Mail I've had a quick look at the folders in the old account names user data folders etc. but don't seem to be able to see much. Can anyone advise where I should be looking? Many thanks.

    I can't seem to get in to leave this as an answer...but for Outlook Express, look on the PC under: %USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities\{Identity-GUID}\Microsoft\Outlook Express\. For Outlook, try: drive:\Documents andSettings\ \Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook. If it is Windows Live Mail: C:\Users\\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Live Mail. All this is assuming that these are not roaming profiles, or you wouldn't be removing them from the domain? That situation would have the email files stored in the user profiles on the server.

    Then the same responses would apply to you. If they don't work, please describe your environment so someone knows where to begin. -- Tom
