Re: outlook express file recovery tool

Have a look at this follow the instructions it should make it all better.

MailNavigator can cope with the task of restoring out-of-order dbx files when Outlook Express itself cannot read them and when a range of other programs are not capable of restoring the information contained in these files. These situations can happen because of viruses, computer breakdown, power interruptions and many other reasons, leading to errors in the file system.
If your computer crashed, first of all you should make sure you have backup copies of your dbx files as well as of all other important data. It's good if you make backup copies of your data on a regular basis. But, unfortunately, in our experience situations are often encountered where there is already nothing to restore.
The process of data recovery from dbx files includes two stages:

If your Outlook Express program is properly installed and tuned, MailNavigator will automatically find the dbx files from the information in the systems register. In this case you can load the dbx files from the Information Retrieval page by double clicking on each of them. Or search for messages in these files using the search system.
If MailNavigator cannot automatically determine the location of the dbx files (for example if these files are on a CD), first you have to find them using search tools, and then load them into MailNavigator using the menu command:
File | Load External Mailbox...
eudora1.gif Once you've read the messages, select the ones that should be exported back into Outlook Express. You can use various filters to select the messages. If you want to export all the messages browsable in the Navigator at once, use the menu command:

Message | Select All
Having selected the messages, export them using the menu command:

Message | Save as...
eudora2.gif In the opened dialogue box, indicate the file and export path, and choose the file type: Eudora mailbox.
When the command is executed, there will be files in the export directory with extensions .toc and .mbx, and also a file descmap.pce. If there are attached files in the exported messages they will be saved in the subdirectory Attach.

Once the mailbox in Eudora format is created, open the program Outlook Express and use the menu command:
File | Import | Messages...
In the opened dialogue box, as the program from which the message is imported, select: Eudora Pro or Light:
In the next dialogue box indicate the directory in which you put the messages from MailNavigator at the export stage:
Further, if Outlook Express finds mailboxes in this directory, it will suggest you select one of them for import:
All that remains to do is to press the Finish button, and a folder containing the imported messages is created in Outlook Express. hope this helps

I accidentally permanently deleted my Outlook Express application, can it be restored? My OS is Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit, 2009 version, Service Pack 1

Windows 7 does not support the use of Outlook Express - this was removed from Windows Vista and Windows 7 and replaced by Windows Mail (in Vista) and by Windows Live Mail (in 7).
If you have copies of the Outlook Express mail database files (inbox.dbx etc) you should be able to migrate these into Windows Live Mail using the Import Messages option in the File menu and selecting Microsoft Outlook Express 6 then browsing to the folder where your mail database files for Outlook Express are held.
If you have previously exported your Outlook Express account details (name.iaf) - you can import these into Windows Live Mail too through the Import option in the Accounts page.
Lastly, if you still have your Outlook Express Address book (name.wab) this can be imported in to your Windows Live Contacts by selecting File then Import Windows Address book (.wab).

File with extension *.dbx

DBX files (files with *.dbx extension) are the files where Outlook Express stores email messages.They can be found in so-called Outlook Express Store Folder named"Inbox.dbx," "Sent Items.dbx," etc. To determine Store Folder locationclick Store Folder button at Tools>Options>Maintenance in OutlookExpress. DBX files may be copied to another folder in order to backup e-mail messages.

Outlook express


Error 0x800c0133 when you are retrieving email with your Outlook Express (OE) is because of currupted Inbox file.
To remedy please follow these steps:
  1. Open OE, on the left pane, right click "Local Folders", select "New Folder...", specify a name for your new folder as "Temp".
  2. If you are still able to access "Inbox", move all mails in "Inbox" to the new "Temp" folder.
  3. Go to menu "Tools" -> "Options" -> "Maintenance" tab -> "Store Folder" button. It will show the location of your Inbox file, please remember this location.
  4. Close OE, go to the location mentioned above, delete the file "inbox.dbx".
  5. Restart OE, the "Inbox" folder should be auto recreated. Move back your mails to the new "Inbox", remove the "Temp" folder.

Another solution
Error Number:0x800c0133

Error Number: 0x800C0133 = a corrupt Inbox.

Move any mail you wish to save to a local folder you create. Then:

Tools | Options | Maintenance | Store Folder will reveal the location of
your Outlook Express files. Press the Tab key to highlight the folder
location, then Ctrl+C. Close OE, then Start | Run | Ctrl+V will put the
location in the box - Click OK and you'll see the OE files. Otherwise, write
the location down and navigate to it in Windows Explorer.

In WinXP, 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 |

With OE closed, find the DBX file for the folder in question {Inbox.dbx} and
delete it. A new one will be created automatically when you open OE.

General precautions for Outlook Express:

Do not archive mail in default OE folders. They will eventually become
corrupt. Create your own user defined folders for storing mail and move your
mail to them. Empty Deleted Items folder regularly. Keep user created
folders under 100MB, and Default folders as empty as is feasible.

After you are done, follow up by compacting your folders manually while
working *offline* and do it often.

Click on Outlook Express at the top of the folder tree so no folders are
open. Then: File | Work Offline (or double click Working Online in the
Status Bar). File | Folder | Compact all folders. Don't touch anything until
the compacting is completed.

Turn off e-mail scanning in your anti-virus program. It is a redundant layer
of protection that eats up CPUs 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, see:

In Tools | Options | Maintenance: Uncheck Compact messages in background and
leave it unchecked.
