this has me stumped - how to recover old emails!

  SANAP 16:23 15 Dec 2004

I stupidly thought that if I moved all my files etc to the D: drive before doing a clean install then when I put everything back on C: I could access all my old OUTLOOK emails and folders but for now I am stumped. I have found all the old stuff as .dbx but can't import or should say don't know how to get outlook to import dbx files!!

Is there a relatively simple solution to this and I don't want to lose old emails? I recall getting files back about 3 years ago but can I remember what I done!! It may be I was using outlook express then.

Go to File/Import/Messages select which version of OE, click next and then the browse button to were you have them stored. You should then be able to import all you old emails.

Outlook uses .pst files rather than .dbx - did you save any of these?!

.dbx can be OE version 5 also.
