I have a machine that shut down while outlook express was open. When I now open OE, none of my folders or mail messages in any of my mailboxes are there except for my deleted items and sent.

I have all the DBX files, and I am trying to figure out how to get the messages out of the DBX files, and back into OE without buying a 50.00 piece of software.

Does anyone have any suggestions for me. I would appreicate any help I can get at this point...

Thanks so much for your help!

In Outlook Express go to ...

Maintenance (tab)
Store Folder (button)

Check that the folder is pointing to your DBX files and not a new blank copy. If it is try copying your files to a new folder and changing the location in Outlook to point to it.
