outlook express - importing dbx problems

Just reformatted my pc, wanted to keep my outlook express stuff, so..

- Exported and backed up my wife's messages, contacts and accounts.
- Exported and backed up my own messages, contacts and accounts.
- Have successfully imported my wife's messages, contacts and accounts.
- Have successfully imported my contacts and accounts.
- However my messages just won't import - the .dbx files are there, in the same kind of folder etc as my wife's.

The only differences, I can see, between my wife's email stuff and mine:
- I have more .dbx files (therefore mail folders)
- I have bigger .dbx files.
- I have an "outlook.dbx" file and an ""outlook (1).dbx" file. ???

Have been following the guide here:

and as I say it's worked for my wife's email messages, contacts and accounts.

Thanks for any help.

What error message are you getting?

Try right clicking on the folder the files are stored in and untick Read Only

thanks, I'm not actually getting an error message (sorry should have detailed this!) it's saying it's doing correctly, but it isn't, if that makes sense...
they're not read only
