Export Outlook Express 5

By ominous ·
Do you know where the mailbox file is kept for Outlook Express (version 5)? I'm trying to move it from an old Windows 2000 boot partition to another W2K partition and would like to preserve its contents. Is there a way of exporting its contents into another file and then importing that file in my other partition? Outlook Express has an export function but it exports
directly to Microsoft Outlook in the current partition. Thanks in advance for any help given.

do a search on *.dbx. you will be able to see the folder location for the inbox, sent items etc. Copy all the files frome that folder and install them at w2k box.

(..\username\local settings\application data\identeties\x.x.x.x.x.x.x.x\microsoft\outlook express)
