You will need to get the information out of the Outlook Express .dbx file. I've found that OE-Mail Recovery (http://www.oemailrec...s-recovery.html) can do the job quite nicely.

However, it does cost some money. You can run a search on your computer for *.dbx (Start > Find) and pick out the correct mailbox. You can view the files in notepad, or something, and get information out, but it'll have weird characters.


Also, I was unaware that there was such a thing as a trial version of OE? Or are you referring to the Recovery tool itself? If so, you could try some of the other ones, like Mail Navigator - http://www.mailnavig...ok_express.html. Google around for some.
