Recently, accidentally uninstalled Outlook 2003 on work computer. Computer links to a network via smartcard. Unable to locate installation disk for Outlook. Would contacts/e-mails/ and archives possibly be saved somewhere externally? I have a backup on a thumb drive but I'm not sure if an instillation CD would be required. Main concern are the contacts/e-mails that were saved. Please advise.

Contacts and email are in a data file - in the case of an Outlook connector account, they are in an ost file under the local app data path - C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook. As long as you didn't delete the profile, you can reinstall outlook and get everything back.

Note that an ost file is not useable except in the account that created it. However its a server side account, so everything is on the server.

If you are using a pst file, the data file is there as well, but it can be opened in any data file.
