    Importing Outlook Express Messages into Outlook 2007

    I was wondering if anyone can instruct me on how I can import my .dbx files
    from outlook express (Win XP) to Outlook 2007 (Vista 64bit)? I've tried
    using the help instructions to no avail. I've tried copying the .dbx files
    to my new laptop (with Vista) under the Outlook Directory again to no avail.

    Anyone know how I can do this short of forwarding everything back to myself?

    Thanks

    This newsgroup is dedicated to the Windows Mail program.
    You should probably ask in an Outlook newsgroup where the
    Outlook experts hang out: microsoft.public.outlook.general .

    In this case, you would transfer your OE data into Windows Mail, then export
    it from Windows Mail into Outlook 2007. Instructions to transfer from OE
    ..DBX files to Windows mail are here:

    Once that's done, use Windows Mail to transfer your messages to Outlook,
    then use Outlook to import addresses from Windows Mail.
