Export messages to outlook - rondell - 12-31-2019

Hi, I am running the outlook express (run as xp's) on Windows 10 and trying to export my messages to OUTLOOK (office 2013 or 2010).
Unfortunately not all messages have been transferred.
For example when trying to export my INBOX folder messages, only about half of the messages (older ones) are transferred to OUTLOOK.
Is there a limitation on the number of messages transferred form each DBX file ?
Is there a way to avoid this problem ?
Thanks for any help

Unfortunately when you buy a utility without "PARENTS" - only "GOD" can help you if it doesn't work Smile

you can create archive folders on OE so you can move there some emails and have your email folders below 2gb. Then try to import again on outlook

Thanks for your reply.
I just realized my problem is not the DBX file size but because the file was corrupted.
Hence, I am trying to use a DBX fixing utility called UNDBX which extracts all emails from a corrupted DBX file into EML type (a file for each message).
My problem now is that for some reason I can not drag the EML files into the outlook express folders.
Did you face such a problem before ?

DOES ANYBODY KNOW HOW TO IMPORT EML FILES INTO OUR CURRENT OUTLOOK EXPRESS ?
I already tried to use the import messages option but it says it doesn't recognize the messages or another application is currently has the files open.

Thanks for your support.
