I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I'm using Outlook Express 5. All of a sudden last week the program stopped sending a copy of my outgoing emails to the Sent Items folder. This feature is checked on the Advanced tab on the Options menu and it has been working fine since I installed the software months and months ago. I have unchecked and checked the box with no apparent change. Any ideas? Thanks!

can anyone give me a step by step description, how i can export my Emails and the Address book from Outlook Express 6 to another Computer which runs also Outlook Express 6?
I tried already to export the Address book but it only allows me to export it as a *.csv-File and after i put the data on my usb stick and try to import it on my new computer by File - Import - Addressbook, the program keeps asking me for a *.wab-File? (btw: i can only use the: "Text File (Comma Separated Values))" Option, when exporting the address book.

Export and Import from email messages doesn't work either.

Has anyone a really step-by-step description how to do this??

Thank you very much in advance for your help


A:Solved: Import & Export from Outlook Express 6 to Outlook Express 6

Hi wizzle2003

When you are ready to Import the .csv file on the destination computer,
In Outlook Express,
File > Import > Other Address Book
You should then be given the option to choose a Text File (Comma Separated Values)
Then Browse to the .csv file to complete the Import.
Enable Show Hidden Files and folders:

Open My Computer,
Tools > Folder Options > View tab,
under Hidden Files and Folders, verify Show Hidden Files and Folders is selected.
Remove the check mark for Hide Extensions for known file types.
To locate the directory where Outlook Express keeps it's message store:
Tools > Options > Maintenance tab > Store Folder
Note the location, then Cancel out of the window.

Navigate to that directory, copy all the .dbx files to a folder on the Desktop.
Copy those files to a folder on the Desktop of the destination computer.
If you are using a Flash drive to transfer the files, it may take a couple of transfers to complete.

Once all the .dbx files are on the Destination computer,
Open Outlook Express,
Tools > Import > Messages > Microsoft Outlook Express 6 > Next
Select: Import mail from an OE 6 store directory
Click: OK
Browse to the folder containing the .dbx files on the Desktop.
When you reach the Finish button,
You should see a "Congratulations Your data was successfully imported"

If there is more than one Identity in Outlook Express, switch to the other Identities in Outlook Express and repeat the steps above.

Folks I have read the MS tech notes on how to get Outlook 2003 [I have it via Office 2003 Professional, full install] to import from OE6. It fails under either option: import from "another program" or "Import Internet Mail....". Under the former it is pointed to the correct folder, but fails with Error: Cannot open,.. another program in use" but there's not... I tried copying the folder to a nice clean location on the C: and checked all the properties, nothing interfering, still won't open the folder.
Under the latter option it just doesn't do anything after directing it to the correct folder. Seems to accept the command, closes the window, but does not import anything. No error messages.

Umm.... do MS teams communicate with one another??

Closely related: If I could just get the FOLDERS I had setup it would be a great asset, or if i could just get the ADDRESS book it would help. Do you know how to import *.dbx folders into Outlook 2003? Or the old outlook Express address Book?



A:Outlook 2003 Will Not Import Outlook Express folders, mail, anything

They are written in two different formats that are uncompatible. The Oulook Express has a file sytem totally unique to it.

I had the same problem about 6 weeks ago going from XP to Win7.
I had to transfer address book to notepad and put it into Outlook one at a time. The old mail sits in the old PC.
I have heard you can transfer the OE mail files over to Windows mail or gmail etc. Then transfer files from the new mail server to Outlook.
File system is changed over with the mail transfer- I haven't tried it though.

I did a Google and found this. I didn't find this page six weeks ago.

I am very frustrated! I renamed my OE6 store files for my Outlook Express emails as I have multiple identities. In addition, I create 2 additional folders in which I keep emails that I don't want to lose. Before the drive is reformated, these store folders containing only the 2 created folders are copied to a disk, (I usually copy all the folders, didn't this time). When I set up OE6 again, I create the 2 additional folders and then copy my saved emails back in, only this time it isn't working!!!! I create the additional folders during the set up of the identity, but when I copy and paste .dbx folders, they aren't being "read".

I have gotten myself confused as I have tried so many different ways to copy them back in where they belong that now I can't remember the order of the steps to accomplish this task. Could someone please help? I would be most appreciative.

The OS is Win XP Pro, SP3.

I'm trying to read the e-mails from my old Windows 98 computer on my current Windows XP computer but I haven't been able to figure out how to successfully do this. The e-mail client on the Windows 98 machine was Outlook Express 6 and the one on my current XP computer is Outlook 2002.

I followed the instructions listed on the Microsoft support site (Article ID: 270670) for backing up the data from Outlook Express which left me with a folder of .dbx files (Inbox.dbx, Drafts.dbx etc) which I then burned onto a CD and transferred over to my XP computer. My problem is that now that I've done that I'm not sure how to get Outlook 2002 to import that folder of .dbx files or recognize it. I googled it but didn't find any helpful results other than links to expensive conversion programs. So could anyone here offer any help on the matter? Thanks in advance.

A:How do I import messages from Outlook Express 6 into Outlook 2002?

Update: I realized that Outlook can't open the .dbx files and that Outlook Express has to export them to Outlook.

Any advice on what to do next?

Hi Melissa, Welcome to TSG! First, make sure you can view hidden files and folders and do a search for your OE5 .dbx files. Find > *.dbx
Remember the location!

Then to import from OE5 into OE6, click

Hey Folks

I am trying to import OE5 .dbx files from a Win2k machine to a completely different machine (Win2003) with OE6. Everytime I try to import the DBX files I get an error message stating:

"No messges can be found in this folder or another application is running that has the required files open..."

The thing is I have even tried copying the DBX files from the old machine to the new machine and importing them from a directory on the new machine. I stil get the same message!

Another strange thing is the impor facility on OE6 does not provic an option import OE5 files, only OE4 & OE6.

I've already imported my mail accounts and address book, just not my messages.

Any ideas how to fix this?

Just going through the frustrating task of switching to new Win7 machines from old XP machines.
I have several thousand important (business) e-mails on my old XP machine under Outlook Express 6.  Six different accounts, each with their own inbox.  Four are POP3, 2 are IMAP.  The new machine has Office 2010 with Outlook, and I have set up all 6 accounts and they are sending and receiving fine.
I have read several articles on how to move (or export/import) all my old e-mails into Outlook, but they all seem to be written as if I have both Outlook Express and Outlook on both machines - not the case.  Some say to install Outlook temporarily on the old machine and make the conversion there - is this really necessary?  Where would I get just Outlook 2010?  Download a trial version?
The articles all seem to make reference to a PST file.  I have located the store files on the Outlook Express (old) machine, and they are all in a .dbx format.  Additionally, there are literally dozens of these dbx files, many for old folders that I no longer have on the old machine, even some old e-mail accounts that have been closed for years..
Can someone walk me though how to move (export/import) my e-mails from my old XP machine, with Outlook Express 6.xxx only, onto my new machine, with Outlook 2010 only?  Can I migrate individual folders, or do I have to move everything (all 6 accounts plus the sent items folder) at ... Read more

The title would make it sound like a simple problem, but I can't figure it out for the life of me. Here is the situation. Last week a thunder storm blew through and sent a electrical spike through my protection and rendered my motherboard useless. My computer guy salvaged my data for all users from the drive. Once the motherboard was replaced, he had to repair the OS,(Vista). He then plopped the data into a folder on the drive. Now I just need to reload my programs and all that stuff. My question is this: I see the folder with all of my contacts in it. How do I get those contacts back in Outlook 2007? I tried the import wizard, but it seems that there is no option for importing that format. I looked at the properties of one of the contacts and it is listed as a .contact format. What is that?

A:Thunderbird to Outlook 2010 - email import?

What's slow about it? Thunderbird is a pretty basic, simple e-mail editor. If it opens slowly or doesn't respond, I suspect you have other problems.

Also, there's no way to natively import e-mails from Thunderbird into Outlook, so you'd have to hunt for a 3rd party tool.

I just imported a large PST file (exported from my old computerís Outlook 2003 Inbox folder) into Outlook 2010. I ran the Inbox Repair Tool on it before importing it to make sure it was error-free. But now over 6,000 reminders are demanding my attention. Oddly, only some of them are actual old calendar items -- some are Contacts, and many are simple filenames (e.g., C:\\WINDOWS\Desktop\etc.).

I canít get the reminders to go away. No matter what I do (Dismiss All, Dismiss individually, close dialog box), Outlook hangs up for a minute or more (Not Responding). When I do regain control, it's only for a short time before it stops responding again, and eventually the reminders dialog pops back up and I'm right back where I started.

Things I've tried to no avail:

Running Outlook with both the /CleanReminders and /ResetFolders command line switches.
Running the Inbox Repair Tool on the merged PST. Errors were found and repaired, but it didnít fix the reminder problem.

This problem has rendered Outlook virtually unusable, and Iím stumped. Anyone have any suggestions?

I then migrated my OE mail to WLM. I then tried to both export my mail to Outlook 2010 and Import from Outlook 2010. When importing, Outlook only saw the welcome mail message but didnt see anything else.

I should add that I copied my old (2007 Outlook.pst) file into Outlook 2010's store directory. I am not sure if this is why I am unable to import my mail.

Make sure Outlook is not running
Open WLM. Menu item: File -> Export Messages
Select output to Exchange format. This will generate the PST file and follow the directions as they are presented
Close WLM
Open Outlook. Your entire email account will appear as a folder under your default account in Outlook. Time to move things around.

I've just done a full re-installation of Windows ME on my PC, to overcome deteriorating performance. I backed up data and restored it OK. However, I backed up the Outlook Express 6.0 messages by doing an Outlook Express export into several files, and copying those files back onto the new PC (I suspect now that I should have simply copied the files themselves in Explorer, rather than exporting them).

I have tried to import the messages from these exported files into my now empty Outlook folders. I chose to import from an OE6 Identity, and selected the folder where the files are; the files are all named after the Outlook folders, and have type DBX. The import function shows me the files listed as folders. I select one of them, and the import claims to be successful, but no messages are imported.

I have also tried simply replacing the new empty files with the backed up DBX files, but although Outlook allows me to view these folders, it shows them as empty.

Does anyone know how I can rescue the messages from the exported files? All I have is the exported files.

Make sure it shows 3 columns will be used.
Hit Ok.
Copy the table. (Table-Select table, copy)
Paste into Excel.
Save as a CSV file.

I have been able to import email from Outlook to Outlook Express, but I can't get Outlook Express to Import the inbox.dbx and sent.dbx.

Any ideas or programs that would do this?

I have a USB flash drive that has a folder full of names and email addresses
in the ".vcf" format. My "Main identity's Contacts" folder is empty and for now I'd like to keep it that way. I have a "New folder", a sub-folder under Main Identity's contacts, and that is where I want to copy the contents of the folders' .vcf files from the flash drive. So far I haven't been able to do this
because it seems(?) that the .vcf files (and probably any other address-type file) have to come from the Main Identity list which in this case is empty.
How do I import the .vcf files from the folder that is on the flash drive
to the new empty folder (we'll just call it the "new folder for now) that is UNDER the empty Main identity's contacts folder in the address book?
Everything I have tried puts the .vcf files in the Main identity's Contacts list and does not copy automatically to the New folder, even when I drop & drag to the new folder.
I am trying to avoid having to put all the addresses into the main Identity folder , and then having to move or copy them to the new folder. i want to avoid this because I have the list on the flash drive edited just the way I wanted and it would be a slow, torturous, task to have to copy each file manually to the new folder from the Main identity folder. IS THERE SOME WAY TO IMPORT A FOLDER OF 700 .VCF FILES FROM A FLASH DRIVE TO THE SUB FOLDER (NEW FOLDER, UNDER MAIN INDENTITY) without first importing the fil... Read more

I need to recover old emails and address book entries from a (previous) version of OE.
I removed the OS HD (Win98 - OE ver.= not sure) from the old machine and set it aside. Note that I didn't know to export any files at this time. I never use OE and I'm doing this for a friend. I installed the new HD along with new MB/Mem/CPU etc. and installed XP Home without having the old HD in the system. Got the hardware installed and working then reinstalled the old HD. I ran OE from the fresh XP install thinking I could just get the old OE info (email, addy book) from the old HD. I can't seem to find anything! I ran the OE .exe from the old HD and it still just runs the new installed version. I'm hoping that the data is still there intact and retrievable somewhere.
Any input or info would be GREATLY appreciated!

A:Import mail for Outlook Express?

sorry..I am not in an ?ber helping mood today, which means I will leave the www.google.com search up to you...searching for 'importing emails outlook express' should do the trick...

this is what I know...you have to create a 'backup folder' of the mails, etc, from an active OS...then of course save said backup folder...

then you can import all data in the new OS...

sooooo...hopefully you are in some way able to hook up the old drive and boot into the old OS, and do said proceedure..its kinda a pain in the a$$, but it does work, I did it myself a few months ago...

and again, sorry for not giving you exact links...only got 3 hours sleep last night, and am a bit braindead and tired...

I am trying to leave Microsoft Office behind on this latest computer I built. I have installed my old hard drive in order to transfer the data to my new hard drive. Now I am having trouble importing settings and messages to either Thunderbird or Outlook Express on my C drive from Outlook 2003 which is on the F Drive.

Thunderbird doesn't allow me to look for it and says it can't find Outlook when I try to import directly so I am trying to import into Outlook Express and figure if I want to use Thunderbird, I can import from Express since they are both on the C drive. However, when I try to do it with Express using the standard "File - Import - messages - Microsoft Outlook" method I get this message.

"Messages cannot be imported from the MAPI client.

MAPI is not installed on this computer or an error occurred while initializing it."

I am assuming that without Outlook being installed on the C drive the MAPI isn't either. Or, perhaps it's because I am using <Microsoft Windows Professional XP 64

I exported the messages as csv files and other settings as .pst but can't seem to import them either? Any suggestions on how i might get this done? I would prefer to get everything into Thunderbird but, at this point will settle for Outlook Express. My last choice would be to install outlook 2003 on this new drive as that means I need to install the entire suite. Thank you.

I have switched from one laptop to another, and in the process to bring over my OE files, I copied from all the .dbx files from my old laptop to the new in the relevant Identity directory (as the identity was the same). But on the new laptop, OE will not start with those files. I get a long error message that has the code (0x8007000E, 5) at the end.

Any ideas? I do not want to lose all my old emails and folders!

Please help...!!

A:Outlook Express 6 Import Fails

Hi jackf

Welcome to Tech Support Guy Forums!

If you copied all the .dbx files to the directory where Outlook Express keeps the .dbx files, close Outlook Express.

Open Windows Explorer and navigate to that directory.

Check all the files for the Read-Only attribute and remove it, Outlook Express does not like Read-Only files.

Then locate the Folders.dbx file and Right click send it to the desktop.

Open Outlook Express, it may take a minute as it will be recreating the Folders.dbx file which should include the new .dbx files.

Let us know what happens.

My hard drive recently crashed and I installed a new one. Fortunately, I had backed up my data so did not lose anything. However, I am having trouble importing my email files into the new Outlook. I have Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit and Outlook 2010 on both the old and new hard drives.

I imported several archive folders with no problem. However, the main account folder will not import. When I try, I get an error message ?The Outlook data file (.pst) is already in use in the current profile.? I have dozens of critical work emails in folders that I can?t access. How do I import all the folders into Outlook on my new hard drive?
