As a general rule, you must import OE to Outlook on the same computer (XP) and then transfer them to the new machine.
 
You try to import from the storage folder in OE dbx files?
 
If you still have the machine with OE set up, you can do it this way.
 
 
 
To create a Windows folder on the desktop from the old machine.
* Open a folder in OE and drag the messages into the folder on the desktop. (They will remain in OE).
To copy this folder on the desktop on the new machine.
Open the folder and drag the messages to a folder in the new e-mail program.

  • Import messages from Outlook Express to Windows Live Mail Inbox

    I can't import my Inbox of Outlook Express to WIndows Live Mail.  I saved my OE Inbox to a file .csv to a flash drive.   I then copied the file from my desktop flash player.   I open Live Mail, import, Microsoft Outlook express and stressed the desktop icon of the file.   I get an error that no message is available.  What I am doing wrong?

    OE contacts are stored in a .wab file. You can import this (or a CSV file)
    in WLM. Just open WLM, open Contacts, do a file-import-etc.
     
    Your messages in OE are already stored in .dbx files. Copy all the .dbx
    files on the XP computer in a temporary folder on the Windows 7 computer.
    Be sure to include the folders.dbx file.
     
    then open WLM and don't file - import - etc.

  • Import e-mail messages from Outlook Express in Windows Live Mail?

    I have recently moved to a new PC with Win7 and have been using Live Mail - more often with success, I thought with the exception of one or two faults, but I'll probably post a question on those.
    On the audit of my old PC today, when I open Oulook Express have been downloaded more than 100 emails that have not appeared in Live Mail - dating back to the time I went.
    I tried to export these messages of OE, put it on a USB key and then import in LM LM do not seem to recognize them - these are the dbx files. Suggestions anyone please?
    Thank you in advance.
    Jeff.

    If both computers use the same e-mail address, you must do this to get the messages on both.
     
    On both machines: tools | Accounts | Mail | Properties | Advanced - Check: leave a copy of messages on the server.
     
    On a single computer only, make sure to delete messages after X days to satisfy your allocated space that you get from your server.

    When I opened outlook express Inbox, all messages have been deleted, please help restore the same

    Go to view | Current view | Show all messages to make sure that you have just selected 'Hide read messages.

    If this does not help, check your Recycle Bin, the bak files which are dbx files, you can restore backups.  See www.oehelp.com/OETips.aspx#2

    If this does not help, then you will probably need my program DBXpress (www.oehelp.com/DBXpress/), which will extract the messages from individual dbx files, and if messages are no longer in the files, it can extract from the disc itself.

  • Cannot delete messages on my Outlook Express Inbox

    Cannot delete messages on my Outlook Express Inbox

    You have corruption of dbx files.

    Spend most of your messages out of the Inbox, if you can and move the messages you want to record off deleted items, and sent items. Locate the OE message store and then close OE.

    Tools | Options | Maintenance | Store folder will reveal the location of your Outlook Express files. Note the location and navigate on it in Explorer Windows or, copy and paste in start | Run.

    In Windows XP, Win2K & Win2K3 the OE user files (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.

    With OE closed, find the Deleted Items.dbx and Sent Items.dbx files and delete them. New files will be created automatically when you open OE.

    Compact all folders as described below.

    To avoid this in the future:

    Do not archive mail in the receipt or sent items box. Create your own user-defined folders and move messages you want to put in them. Empty the deleted items folder daily. Although the dbx files have a theoretical capacity of 2 GB, I recommend all a 300 MB max for less risk of corruption.

    Information on the maximum size of the .dbx files that are used by Outlook Express:
    http://support.Microsoft.com/?kbid=903095

    After you're done, followed by compacting your folders manually while working * off * and do it often.

    Click Outlook Express at the top of the the folder tree so no folders are open. Then: File | Work offline (or double-click on work online in the status bar). File | Folder | Compact all folders. Don't touch anything until the compacting is completed.

    Disable analysis in your e-mail anti-virus program. It is a redundant layer of protection that devours the processors and causes a multitude of problems such as time-outs and account setting changes. Your up-to-date A / V program will continue to protect you sufficiently. For more information, see:

  • Import e-mail Messages from Outlook Express 6 to Windows Mail

    I see the process of imported messages. He created and "Imported folder", but there is nothing in it.

    See www.oehelp.com/backup.aspx#wm there are specific directions he with a lot of hoops to make it work, because it is very buggy.  Also, make sure that the folder that you tried to import does have messages inside (you can open the file with Notepad dbx and looking for something readable or zip it and if it zips down to nothing, so full of nothing).

    You may have a corrupt inbox.  Move all messages from the Inbox to another folder if you can.  Then move the inbox.dbx file in another directory in the message store directory (found via Tools |) Options | Advanced | Maintenance | Storage folder and files are hidden).  OE will create a new one so that should solve the problem.

    Alternatively, you can go to file | Identities and setup a new identity, which will give you a new message store) and then add your e-mail account.  If it works fine, you can use the file | Import | Messages to get the messages from the old identity.

    In the future see points 2 and 3 here: www.oehelp.com/OETips.aspx#2 and make sure that you back up your messages frequently, because cases often get corrupted.

  • Cannot receive messages in Outlook Express

    Recently (for the first time) I consulted my ISP mail service. Since then, I have been unable to receive messages in Outlook Express, even if I can send them. When I check new messages, I get a connection, but no new messages. Some of my messages are confused on my e.mail of ISPs. I checked all my settings etc for OE account, and they look very good. It was working perfectly before. Any ideas, help would be appreciated.

    Hello

    If all worked correctly before you enter you e-mail service so I guess that it s a virus or a malware application.
    I put t know if you use your Anti virus but you should! It is very important to have this application and also it is very important to update your anti virus everyday software.

    Incorrect settings in Outlook are another possibility.
    Check it!
