    Reading DBX Files

    Thanks in advance for helping a non-techie. I just began using Vista Home
    Premium and Outlook on a new computer. My old emails from the old machine
    were saved to disc and when I attempted to access them, they will not open.
    They are listed as BDX files. Is there an easy way for me to view and save
    these? Your help is super-appreciated. Greg

    Save the files to your hard drive and remove the read only attribute.

    Zlatan24,

    DH moved my .dbx files to a MY BOOK, but didn't move any of the other OE files. Can I still recover my emails, within their folders and not as anonymus emails, with your program?

    Tearing my hair out here,
    Majikattic

    I don't know, but here is the usual method of transferring messages in
    DBX files to Windows Mail:

    <http://www.askmehelpdesk.com/email/import-dbx-files-outlook-express-windows-mail-vista-86458.html>

    <http://www.vista4beginners.com/Migrate-from-Outlook-Express-to-Windows-Mail>

    Copy the DBX files to a directory on the hard drive of your Vista
    computer, then make sure they are read-write instead of readonly
    before telling Windows Mail to import the whole directory
    containing them. A directory you create for this purpose under
    your Documents directory is a good choice.
