I am trying to help someone to use Outlook as they have two folders with 10G
of .dbx files using Outlook Express 6. OE pointed to one folder as the file
store and I had no problem getting that folder of emails imported into
Outlook. However I could not import the other folder of .dbx files into
Outlook to a separate .pst file or import at all. How could I do that? Would
I have to first tell OE to use the other folder and then import into
Outlook, though I am concerned that would import emails into the same
Outlook .pst unless I created another one first and mad it the default.

Thanks Steve

Dbx is a data file used to store emails, contacts, notes in Outlook express. But this files easily damaged or corrupted when exceed 2GB size limit or due to virus attack or application malfunctioning. But there is nothing to worry as by using dbx Outlook express recovery software, you can easily recover damaged or corrupted .dbx files. It incorporated advance algorithm to recover inbox, Outbox, calendars, contacts, drafts etc. Get more details at: http://www.recoverydeletedfiles.com/outlook-express-recovery .html

You can import DBX files to Outlook with the help of Windows Live Mail. In this process, you need to import files of OE to Windows Live Mail and then export these files to Outlook. This process is little typical.

OR you can also use DBX to PST converter from SysInfoTools. This software converts your OE email files to Outlook without changing or modifying its content. I have recommended this software earlier to many users and have received positive feedback from them. You can try it.

For more details, you can visit: www.sysinfotools.com/recovery/dbx-to-pst-converter.html
