    What is the file name of the Outlook Inbox (Office XP)? I need to restore it
    from a Drive Image to recover email.

    It's a .PST file for Outlook.

    I cannot vouch for XP but in 2000 the file is Outlook.pst in C:\Documents
    and Settings\Administrator\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft
    \Outlook. There is also an extend.dat file in that directory.

  4. That'd be \%USERNAME%\, surely. The OP never specified the
    administrator account.

    P.S. Why did you obliterate Ralph's post?
