Default outlook after installing XP

I recently purchased XP and installed it. I just upgraded so I wouldn't lose any information on the computer. I try using my outlook express and it willnot let me open email, create email and my address book is gone. My question is, if I uninstall xp will everything that was on and in my outlook express be there? Will is restore itself back to the original configuration?

Do a search for mailbox.PAB and Mailbox.pst. The first is your address book and the later are your emails.

If it's not a legit copy, that might be why things arn't working. MS took a few keys and made it impossible to use them.
