    not likely that you lost it -- look in
    C:\Documents and Settings\YOUR LOGIN\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook

    or for Vista

    C:\Users\YOUR LOGIN\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook

    I think the path statment is not there anymore. If the file is there and the path is not added in the outlook config it has no PST file to open and put the mail. It oculd also be a currupt PST file and you may need to create another one and then migrate the mail over.
