Hi,

1. Copy the .dbx files that are not seen in Outlook from the 'Windows\Application Data\Identities\hexadecimal_string\Microsoft\Outlook Express' folder to another temporary location.
2. Start Outlook Express, click Import on the File menu, and then click Messages to start the Import Wizard.
3. In the Select Program dialog box, click 'Outlook Express' as the e-mail program to import from, and then click Next.
4. In the next dialog box, click 'Import mail from an OE store directory', and then click OK.
5. Locate the temporary location of the .dbx files, and then select the files that you want to import. Outlook Express should begin to import the old mail and create or populate folders.

Hi,

Try this:

1. Copy the .dbx files that are not seen in Outlook from the 'Windows\Application Data\Identities\hexadecimal_string\Microsoft\Outlook Express' folder to another temporary location including 'Folders.dbx'. Grin
2. Start Outlook Express, click Import on the File menu, and then click Messages to start the Import Wizard.
3. In the Select Program dialog box, click 'Outlook Express' as the e-mail program to import from, and then click Next.
4. In the next dialog box, click 'Import mail from an OE store directory', and then click OK.
5. Locate the temporary location of the .dbx files, and then select the files that you want to import. Outlook Express should begin to import the old mail and create or populate folders.

......HAVE TO ADD THIS IMPORTANT NOTE---------
The files Im missing, ARE seen in Outlook from the "Windows..", but ARE NOT SEEN when I start Outlook Express...
Just to make this clear. As said before, those files I have moved to a temporary folder, but I could not import them...as they still was not visibly among files to select, only the files I already could see when Im in Outlook Express...

Thank you for help....

Hi,

Maybe try creating a folder (with the same name as the DBX file) in Outlook, then copy the Folder.dbx to the temporary folder and try to import.

e.g. Create a folder named "Test" for a DBX file named "Test.dbx"

Dear Sylvain, THANK YOU FOR NOT GIVING UP!...
Very strange.....I did as follows.
1) Created a new folder in Outlook Express and named it "Test"
2) Copy a message into this new folder
3) Copy the folder "test.dbx" from "Windows.." into my templocation
4) Started Outlook Express and import....
This time the "test.dbx" folder was on the list and possibly to import.

What next?

The problems is still that my large important folders (with each 365MB) are visable in "Windows..", I have moved them to the temporary location, but still when I start Outlook and try to important from the temporary location they are not there??

Should I maybe try to
1) Create new folders in Outlook Express with the same name is the one I cant reach in "Windows.." and I also have in the temporary location??

2) Another question. In "Windows.." is a dbx file named "wbkD142".
Wonder that is??

Again thank you so for you effort try to help me..

Hi,

1. The test.dbx was an example. What I meant was, just like you were wondering, was to create the folder in Outlook named the same as the DBX file.

Try this: rename 'Skickat (1)' to 'Skickat' to remove the (1) in your temp location. In Outlook, create a folder named 'Skickat'. Then close Outlook and copy the 'Folder.dbx' to the temp location. Open Outlook and try to import 'Skickat' from the temp location. If this works then do the same for all the other DBX files you want to import.

2. I have no idea what 'wbkD142.dbx' is! Must of been a folder at one time.

...What a story!!
I have follow your latest advice, but......still I can not important the "Skicka" folder....When now looking into "Windows.." there is two (2) "Skicka" folders, the one I created lately in Outlook Express and the original one, e.g the one I renamed from "Skicka (1)(Still wondering from where the digit (1) originaly came as I never had made a folder with the name "Skicka (1)" only name "Skicka")...When I import from my temp folder, where I now also have the two "Skicka" folders, the import takes only the new "Skicka" folder!!!Seems as it somehow is two "Outlook Express system", or what to say...
Find attached a part of "Regedit", maybe it can give you some ideas..
.......
Thank you in advance.......
