accessing compressed entourage mail files

i use quark 6.1. For some forgotten reason i have been using microsoft entourage for mac. it recently got filled up and i couldn't open it without first allowing it to compress all my emails and addresses. how do i access these files, they are years of contacts. the files (mailing lists and database cache) are now located in microsoft user data. i 've learned my lesson, but i need these files.
thanks, gary

RE: accessing compressed entourage mail files

They're still all there.  You can access them by opening any old mail, your address book, etc.  It's a good idea to make a copy of the database (or identity) in case it gets corrupted.  That's one advantage of MAIL - no database.
