Reading DBX Files

I have some old DBX files from when I backed up Outlook Express about 12 months ago, and I'd like to take a look to see if there's anything of interest in any of them before deleting.

Is there any good software that can read DBX files?

Thanks very much!

outlook express will read them for you

you will need to put them in the OE files

what o/s are you using?

Windows XP - I considered putting them into Outlook Express, then I thought they needed to be linked to the Folders.dbx file and I didn't want to lose or damage my current OE folders.

ok what you do is this

go to C:\Documents and Settings\YOUR NAME\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities\string\Microsoft\Outlook Express

now copy the inbox.dbx or whichever .dbx you wish to read

now paste it on the desktop or whatever location you want to put it

Now copy the old .dbx file and then paste it in the location C:\Documents and Settings\YOUR NAME\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities\string\Microsoft\Outlook Express

when you have read the messages reverse the procedure
