    Hi,

    I've replaced a Win XP pc with a new Vista laptop. I want to import .dbx
    Outlook Express emails from the old machine to the new. The OE emails are on
    a portable hard drive in dbx form. I've tried importing from within Windows
    Mail, but the file type isn't recognised.

    Any ideas please?

    For one thing, you have to import a whole directory of such files at a time,
    not individual files. Also, the files have to be read-write instead of
    readonly
    to avoid problems. And Windows Mail often has problems importing from
    external devices, instead of from a directory on your hard drive.
