Press the Start button, Search, For Files or Folders.... Press All files and folders, then enter *.dbx as All or part of the filename: (Outlook Express keeps your mail in ".dbx" files).
Press Search

You'll probably find that there are .dbx files in two locations: the newer one underneath "c:\documents and settings", and another. Remember or write down that other.

To recover the mail that is in those old folders, we'll import the messages into the new location.

If you rename the INBOX (inbox.old) .. then RESTART Outlook Express .. the INBOX should be recreated.
You then can import files from the found folders earlier.
