    I need help moving ,dbx Outlook Express messages to Outlook 2007.

    I backed my old email Outlook Express .dbx files to a USB drive. How do I
    import my mail messages and sent files into Outlook 2007? When I try to
    use the Outlook 2007 Import wizard, chose other files and then chose Outlook
    Express 4.x, 5.x, 6.x and internet mail--- and then browse to the folder
    they are in I get an error message that there are no internet email
    messages.

    Thanks

    Robert

  2. I haven't tried this since I don't have Outlook, but it should work.

    Make a new folder on your desktop called OEMail.
    Copy all of the DBX files into it (including Folders.dbx).
    Make sure they are not Read Only by right clicking their Properties.
    Use Outlook's Import function.
