Several months ago, I had problems with my E-mail server. After getting the service back & working correctly, I found my files gone.
I searched high and low and finally found them in c\windows\applicationdata\microsoft\outlookexpressas dbx files. I can neither open or move them. How can I restore them to the original e-mail sites or at least read them?
Rather new to computers so step by step would be appreciated.Thanks!

Anon,

Here are the steps to follow to get your msgs back:

Open outlook express.

Click File, Import, Messages.
Select Outlook Express 5, and hit next.

On the next screen, select Main Identity, and hit ok.

Notice how it automatically has the directory you mention in your previous post ready to go. Hit next.

This will import your messages, after it is done, you may have to hit "finish".
