Default Backing-up Outlook Folders

Please forgive my ignorance, but what is the name of the Outlook file that contains all of the e-mails? What I need to do is download the folders to my laptop when I travel, and then load everything back up to my office computer when I return. I'm trying to keep everything in sync.

The files should be located in your profile within documents and settings.

Another alternative to Outlook Express would be another Mozilla product like Firefox, but is called Thunderbird.

It allows you to import everything, plus has a junk section that will try an filter out all the spam you get. It allows you to bring stuff back as its in a folder just incase, so it's not deleted straight away
Just seems a much better program
