retrieve lost emails in Outlook Express?

  morters 16:01 19 Mar 2010

I was recently attacked by a rather unpleasant trojan. During the process of backing up everything, I somehow lost Outlook Express and with it all my emails back to the year dot. I don’t know if this is down to the trojan or if I accidentally deleted it myself, though the latter seems a bit unlikely.

A friend has suggested it may be possible to recover the emails but she doesn’t know how. I don’t now if this a stupid question but it’s worth a try.

My Outlook Express program files show the following

emails are held in *.dbx Do a search in the C: drive. *.wab is your contacts. Save the files to a stick. Then say how far you have got. David

Thanks, David4637. Have got no .dbx files but found (name) john morton (in folder) C:\Documents and Settings\john morton\Application Data\Microsoft\Address Book and as above but with name john morton.wab~. I think these are probably from Outlook, where my addresses are stored
