How to open an archive file from mail MS Outlook Express (dbx type), but without MS Outlook Express?


Look at the File menu. Perhaps there you will find "to Open".... It is possible through the import will work, but specify other personal folder (that others mail didn't mix up with yourself mail). File - Import - Outlook Express - the Main record - Review - the Necessary file - OK. I have my mail is almost always through the import downloaded, after reinstalling. Or try using this DBX Open File Tool If you do not want through Outlook. You can find it here http://www.dbx.openfiletool.com/

How do you import contacts


When you install Outlook 2010, it automatically converts the Personal Address Book that you used in an earlier version of Microsoft Outlook. Outlook 2010 then adds the converted data to your Outlook 2010 Contacts folder.

If Outlook 2010 does not automatically convert your Personal Address Book, you can import your Personal Address Book to Outlook 2010. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Start Outlook 2010.
  2. Click the File menu.
  3. Click Open, and then click Import. The Import and Export Wizard opens.
  4. Click Import from another program or file, and then click Next.
  5. Click Personal Address Book, and then click Next.
  6. Click Browse, locate the Personal Address Book that you want to import, and then click OK.

    Note Earlier versions of Outlook assign a .pab file name extension to a Personal Address Book. By default, Outlook stores the Personal Address Book in the following folder: C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook
  7. Click Next.
  8. Click Finish to import the Personal Address Book.

HOW TO IMPORT DBX FILE OF OUTLOOK EXPRESS IN OUTLOOK?


Follow this link to see an explanation on how to import email from OE to Outlook.
http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook-help/import-your-messages-or-account-from-outlook-express-to-outlook-HA001094387.aspx

If you have the email files only, you have to hook them up to OE first (temporarily) to be able to import them. It's described in the above document under "when Outlook and Outlook Express are installed on different computers".

Good luck, and please come back with a rating/testimonial if helped :)

I m trying to export the contacts from outlook to excel it is showing error of proo11.msi file


The .msi file contains important settings for MS Office and either the file is corrupt or missing, or there is a problem with your registry or even a hard drive failure.
Long story short: you have to reinstall the file from you original installation CD (in other words: you can not mix "Standard" and "Professional".)

MS has an article about this problem and describes also solutions to it. You find the article here.
