How can I find dbx file so that I can remove it. I am unable to open Outlook Express

How can I find dbx file so that I can remove it.  I'm unable to open outlook express

Original title: dbx file

You try to remove Folders.dbx?
 
 
In Windows XP, the files of user OE (DBX and WAB) are by default marked as hidden. To view these files in Windows Explorer, you must enable Show hidden files and folders under start | Control Panel | Folder Options icon | Opinion, or in Windows Explorer. Tools | Folder options | View.
 
The path to the message will be very similar to this:
 
C:\Documents and Settings\Your User of utilisateur\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities\ {long string of letters & numbers} \Microsoft\Outlook Express
 
With OE closed, find the Folders.dbx file and delete it.  Another will be created automatically when you open OE.
 
Note these possible side effects:
 
When you re - start OE, it will build a new index of all *.dbx files it can read and create a new Folders.dbx. However, understand that you will lose the mail directory structure and message rules will probably have to be edited.

    • You have problems with programs
    • Error messages
    • Recent changes to your computer
    • What you have already tried to solve the problem

    If you're running Vista, you have Windows Mail, not Outlook Express. These instructions for adjustment of these two programs.

    To create a group of contacts:

    You can create a single group name (or alias) to use when sending a message to several contacts at the same time. Just create a group name and add individual contacts to the group. Then just type the name of the group in the box for when you send mail.

    1. in the address book, select the folder in which you want to create a group. Click New in the toolbar, and then click New Group.
    2. the Properties dialog box opens. In the group name box, type the name of the group.
    3. There are several ways to add people to the Group:
    a. to add a person from your address book list, click Select members, and then click a name in the address book list.
    (b) to add a person directly to the group without adding the name to your address book, type the person's name and e-mail address at the bottom of the Properties dialog box and then click Add.
    to add a person to both the Group and your address book, click New Contact and enter the appropriate information.
    (d) to use a directory service, click Select members, and then click search. Select a directory service in the drop-down list at the end of the text box. After finding and selecting an address, it is automatically added to your address book.
    4. Repeat for each addition until your group is defined.

    Note

    a. to view a list of your groups separately from the list of address book in the address book on the view menu, make sure that folders and groups is selected.
     
    b. you can create multiple groups, and contacts can belong to several groups.

    If you want to send to a group without addresses are displayed for each recipient, open the address book and make a new entry. Enter the name of the group in the area of the display, but use your address. (Some Internet service providers require a legitimate address in the line to and recipients will know it's from the Group).

    Click on the button to. Enter the name of the group using your address. Enter the group in the BCC field.

  • How to import a dbx file unique to Windows Live Mail?

    I imported my files of dbx to Outlook Express 6 for WLM (Windows 7) last month, but a valuable record has been lost due to corruption. Now, I discovered a forgotten dbx backup that I'm desperate to add to WLM7, but it does not recognize the dbx file. All the advice I have read, says that you can import all OE6 files and folders at once, and that it does not recognize simple records. There is no work around for this? I'm desperate to import this file, but do not want to lose all my other imported files making.

    Help, please!

    The reason why you can not get imported WLMail dbx files is because Folders.dbx must be included in the backup. Manually recover dbx files in OE, you can export them.

  • How can I disable 5 GHz on 2nd GEN Airport Express?

    I read the previous explanations:

    1 / system preferences > airport > click Wireless on the left, click Advanced, search the list for the 2.4 GHz network and make sure that it is at the top. But I can't find such a list.

    2 / airport utility > modify > click on the wireless tab. What wireless tab? Not easy for me at the airport 6.3.1.

    There must be a way, but I'm just not see it. I'm told my wi - fi enabled printer is more likely to work if she is not confused by the existence of a 5 GHz channel.

    Help much appreciated.

    How can I disable 5 GHz on 2nd GEN AirPort Express?

    You can not.  The 2nd Gen AirPort Express is a double router broadband simultaneously ... so the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz are always on... or... the two are always turned off if you turn off the wireless.

    What you can do, is have a different name for the 5 GHz network, so the 2.4 GHz network has a name and the 5 GHz network will have a different name.  The two networks will continue to use the same wireless network password.

    Not sure if that would help your real question... what it could be.  More details would be useful.
