Opening .dbx files

  Spr 18:07 23 Aug 2006

I know this question has been asked before & I have read the replies in Search Helproom but I still cannot open recovered DBX files. I have tried Folder Options nothing.

I ran Drive Rescue to find the deleted file, saved them to a different Drive but still cannot open them.

I’m using Windows XP running Outlook Express 6?

Go here and look up DBX: click here

You will know which program you used to create hem - use it to open them.

Have you tried File > Import in Outlook Express? Point it at the folder that the files are in, not the files themselves.

OEView allows you to read .dbx files - you can also copy and paste them to OE message panels if you can't import them (I had that problem with a "lost" batch of e-mails).
