    Windows 10 Mail location


    Greetings folks,

    Does anyone know the location of the folder where emails are stored if you use the Microsoft Windows 10 Mail App or are they not stored locally on the PC anymore?

    Someone said they were in the microsoft.windowscommunicationsapps/localstate folder but they aren't so I'm guessing that may be a Windows 8 Mail answer and things have changed since Windows 10. I've also searched for .eml files and cannot find any.

    Any help appreciated.

    So far, this is what I found out. I cannot say it is the correct path. Hopefully, someone who knows this topic will come along.

    Here is the path I am aware of..............
    C:\Users\Mohit\AppData\Local\Packages\microsoft.windowscommunicationsapps_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalState\F iles\601

    Open 601 and you should see .dat files.
    Trouble is...... I don't know how to open .dat files. So I don't know it they contain what we are looking for.
