I have recently transferred all the folders containing my saved emails on Outlook Express to another new Folder. The files all appear with a dbx file extension. Can anyone tell me how I can open these as clicking on them produces a File Download notice inviting me the option to Open, Save or Cancel. Upon clicking "Open" a Windows Internet Explore page appears momentarily, less than 1/2 a second, followed by the previous File Download notice again?

I'll assume you're running OE 6. Hit File, Import, Messages, select Outlook Express 6 (or whatever version of Outlook Express you're importing from, and press Next. Now select Import mail from an OE6 store directory, and press OK. The next page of the import wizard will let you point to the directory containing the other OE's store. Once you've selected that, press Next and you can choose which folders to import.

You have to open dbx files by importing them into OE or using a third party utility like dbxpress.

Thank you so much Johanna and Comnir - problem solved. I was getting panicky in the belief that I had lost my records.
What a great service Geeks To Go provides to beginners like me. I really appreciate the 2 of you letting me benefit from your knowledge. I must have wasted hours trying to solve problems such as this. :whistling:
