Don't know about emails, I'm pretty sure these are not stored but I can be wrong, someone correct me pls if I am.

The PMs are easily viewed directly on the DB using phpMyAdmin. Doing it is privacy invasion though...

That is correct: emails are not stored, but PMs are. by default there is no way for an admin to view others' PMs using phpBB.

Sorry about the multiple posts. I got error messages that made it appear to me that the first times I tried I was not successful, then I couldn't get back into the forum at all for a while.
