I have installed OE on the C-disk but I changed the store-folder to another disk so I did'nt have to loose my mails in case of disk-crash or re-install of W7 for any reasons. I did this unfortunately before I used the restore. After the restore I can't find the folder where the *.dbx files are... Sad

well, thats little complicated. It creates a single file (.obk extension) that has all dbx files, wab address books and any other thing we selected to backup.

After working on it, i found that it can be extracted with 7zip.


After extracting all files are revealed (see pic) with the difference that the file names are numeric.

Tried something else to get messages into OE. I copied a dibx file from the original OE that I have on my old desktop. Then I pasted it into the new OE here on my laptop, restarted OE, but the new OE could not see it. Don't know why, of course, since I've used that procedure on the original OE. I have an older backup program called e-backup that I've used for years for OE. I hesitate to use that because it will copy all those dbx files into the new OE and they will just sit there, take up space and won't be seen.

you can wait a week to be released next version of Outlook Express that has fixed Import, so you can normally import emails and wab from outlook express import menu.
