I have successfully reinstalled Windows on my PC but the email addresses of my people/contacts have disappeared. I have manually replaced those that I know but there are a few that I don't know, Is there any way I can access these addresses.
My email address is (e-mail address removed) and the provider is VirginMediaA solution, if one exists, will be difficult to suggest without knowing what email program / provider you used with your previous installation.
Web based email will generally store contacts on the server.
Locally installed email programs will generally have a file associated with the program that should contain your contacts.
SO....what email program / provider you used with your previous installation.
Ok thanks for that. I used Microsoft OutlookI edited you email address so as to prevent possible web crawlers / spambots from intercepting it.
Generally, it's not a good idea to post your email address on a public forum.
I didn't ask for it and never would except maybe in a private message type environment.
Did you normally retrieve your email using a web browser by logging into Virgin Media??
Did you use an email program such as Thunderbird, Mailbird, or Microsoft Outlook for example.
I'm not familiar with "Virgin Media" but perhaps someone else who is might have additional suggestions or further questions.
From Outlook I have located a OST file but cant open it. What do I need to do?IF you, in fact used Microsoft Outlook.... The Full Version, then I would expect that there would likely be a PST (.pst personal store) file somewhere on your computer which you can open in Outlook anytime you want.
Personally, I store my PST file in a unique location on a different physical hard drive and when I reinstall Windows and then reinstall Microsoft Office, I'll point "Outlook" at that PST file when I reconfigure my four email accounts.
