    Conversion of DBX to PST can be done with the help of manual method into two phases:
    1. Import Outlook Express DBX file into Windows Live Mail
    2. Export from Windows Live Mail to Microsoft Outlook PST

    However, manual method is time consuming and there is risk of data loss. So user can also try third party software like DBX to PST Converter. Visit :https://www.sysessential.com/dbx-pst-con...

    I was trying to import dbx from OE6 into WLM but it would not work. I have now resorted to copying all of the files from OE6 onto a memory stick then manually placed them in folders which I created in WLM. Very tedious since I have around 4.5GB of files, but at least it works !

OE uses .dbx files, but probably not WLM. If you still have OE, try exporting your files and folders as .csr files and see if WLM can handle them.

Ah, maybe this:

I accidentally permanently deleted my Outlook Express application, can it be restored? My OS is Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit, 2009 version, Service Pack 1


Windows 7 does not support the use of Outlook Express - this was removed from Windows Vista and Windows 7 and replaced by Windows Mail (in Vista) and by Windows Live Mail (in 7).
If you have copies of the Outlook Express mail database files (inbox.dbx etc) you should be able to migrate these into Windows Live Mail using the Import Messages option in the File menu and selecting Microsoft Outlook Express 6 then browsing to the folder where your mail database files for Outlook Express are held.
If you have previously exported your Outlook Express account details (name.iaf) - you can import these into Windows Live Mail too through the Import option in the Accounts page.
Lastly, if you still have your Outlook Express Address book (name.wab) this can be imported in to your Windows Live Contacts by selecting File then Import Windows Address book (.wab).

How do I transfer emails in Windows Live mail on Windows 7 back to windows live mail in XP


if you keep a copy of messages on server all you have to do is change computers and download your mail again after setting up your account again.
if not, copy your files ending with dbx and then import them. do a search for *,dbx and make sure hidden and system files are selected under advanced search options

Hi i m qaiser from Karachi Pakistan. I need (.dbx) software to open my saved emails from outlook to my documents folder. so please solve this what can i do to solve this problem?


If you do lose your messages, you can try using my DBXtract program to
attempt to recover the lost messages. Note that dbx files are hidden in
Windows 2000 and Windows XP.
http://www.oehelp.com/DBXtract/linke.gif

If you have upgraded your version of IE and OE or your OS version, and all your messages are lost, then see this article (note that the technique in
the article does not only apply to the issue addressed in the article
title):

OLEXP: Mail Folders, Address Book, and E-mail Messages Are Missing After You Upgrade to Microsoft Windows XP
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;313055linke.gif

If File | Import | Messages does not work, ignore the error message, which is erroneous in itself, and try one of the following techniques to get your messages back:
aa. Right click on each dbx file or a selection of them and go to
Properties and clear the read only attribute of the files. Then try File | Import | Messages again.
bb. Import the dbx files individually. See the last paragraph on this page
for how to do that:
http://www.oehelp.com/backup.aspxlinke.gif
cc. As a last resort use DBXtract
