Windows Live Mail and Broken Display


[link to this post]
 
Hello,

I'm not having a good time at the moment. The latest thing is that one of my Laptops has given up the ghost. Well, the display that is. The onboard screen doesn't work and neither does an external one, so although the machine starts and seems to be running, I cant see what it's doing.

The machine is running W7 HP 64 and I used WLM as my email client. The trouble I have is - no back up in place aaarrrggghhh - that I need to get hold of my emails from there and also my contacts. Please can anyone help as to where I might find them?

I really need these for work sadly. I'm now fully conversant with back ups and have installed Karens Replicator to copy everything once a day to a desktop pc that's always on.

Thank you for any help

On Vista with Windows Mail they are in:

Mail: %USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Microsoft\Windows Mail\Local Folders
Contacts: %USERPROFILE%\Contacts

Might be somewhere similar.
