Extracting Outlook Express Emails

  Batch 12:41 27 Apr 2006

Assuming a standard installation, the mail folders will be located at something like:

Z:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities\{696C300F-E1A4-4F0C-8297-51BE618B53E1}\Microsoft\Outlook Express

Where Z: is the drive with the corrupt OS and USERNAME is the username you were using.

The mail folders are stored as foldername.dbx files.

The address book will be located at something like:

Z:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Application Data\Microsoft\Address Book

The addressbook will be username.wab

If you can't find the files doing the above, try searching for *.dbx and *.wab and you should be able to find them.

To import both of the above, in Outlook Express, click on the File menu and then select Import and follow the appropriate paths.
