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
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...
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...
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
