Chapter 15. Managing Outlook Folders > How Outlook Saves Information

How Outlook Saves Information

Outlook saves items of information you create and receive in what are called folders (page 18). These aren't the type of folders you see on your disks when you use Windows Explorer. Rather, they are information containers that are either within a Personal Folders file on your computer's hard disk or, if you're using C/W Outlook as a client for Exchange, maybe in your Exchange store.

In addition to items of information, Outlook saves setup and reference information in several other files, some of which contain the Windows registry database. For example, the categories you can assign to items are saved within the registry. In various places in this book, there are references to information in the registry, along with a description of how you can access that information if you need to change it.
