*.DBX's are stored in the following folder:

C:\Documents and Settings\YOUR NAME HERE\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities\{BCE2F49F-F4C8-4517-8822-8C2B6B7896AD}\Microsoft\Outlook Express

However to check if you can in OE go to > Tools > Options... > Maintenance > Click STORE FOLDER > Highlight the big long path to the folder and copy it.

Now go to Start > Run > Paste what you have just copied and click ok and the *.DBX's will be there.

If you do then go to start > Run > Copy and Paste:


Now click on the APPLICATION log and look for ERROR (in red) and hopefully you will see the OE error. If you scroll down within that log there will be a link, click that and see what Micorsoft have to say (if anything).
