You mean Outlook 2003? (Part of the Office suite)

Outlook files are stored in .PST files. No folders are created that you view and access via Explorer etc.

The .PST file stores everything from within Outlook in one compressed file. (Usually, IIRC, C:\Documents and Settings\ACCOUNT NAME\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook)

You can backup things individually from Outlook, using the Wizard, but not in the way you think. (If I've understood properly)

I've not used Thunderbird, but I'd hazard a guess it works in a similar way...

Excellent resource for Outlook here...

They are part of the Outlook pst file so you'll never see them as part of the usual file structure on your HDD. If you need to back this stuff up, you cna download a freebie tool from M$ that allows you to backup your Outlook data.
