MY parents computer recently died a horrible death (another posting I have on here) it is past the point of repair and they opted for a new pc. The old computer had windows xp and outlook express is what they used for email. They now have Windows 7 64bit and Office 2007 Professional. The problem is when the pc crashed it corrupted the operating system. I was able to use Acronis to bootup and created a zipped backup of various files. I backed up their profile and in it is the original outlook express files located under
C:\Documents and Settings\<User>\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities\{GUID}\Microsoft\Outlook Express

I do have the files. My question is how can I import this into outlook 2007 as every direction I have seen pertains to transferring the emails between two working systems. In my case I have one working computer and the outlook express backup to work with.

Import it into Windows Live Mail (free download from Windows Update).
From there it should be importable straight into Outlook.
