OLE 5.0 - DBX Files why can't I view ?

1. Create a folder with the name Mail in C:2. Copy all the *.DBX files into this folder
3. In OExpress go to File => Import => Messages => Outlook Express 5 => Next => Import Mail from an OE5 directory => OK => Browse => Select the C:\Mail folder => OK => Next .... Done
Another way is to replace the DBX files from current OExpress with your old DBX files.

Panic Over ( POP ) saves your email, address book, favorites
and docs so you can restore them after a reload of
Windows 98. You must have a D or E drive to run this program.

OE5 has a proprietary binary format that makes archiving
individual messages difficult. In addition, a number of
people have indicated that their message folders have
become corrupted and OE can not read them. Consequently,
they have lost all the messages in that folder.

DBXtract.exe extracts all mail and news messages from
individual dbx files. After extracting the messages one
can drag them from a Windows Explorer folder into an Outlook
Express mail folder.

Requirements:Pentium 90, and Windows 9x, NT, 2000, or Me

Purchase Information: Free

Ever wish you could convert the address database from one email
program's format to another? Dawn is a free utility that makes
it possible. It's rather spartan main interface could be more
intuitive, but luckily it can be run ina much friendlier wizard
mode. You can use Dawn to convert data between
Netscape Communicator 4.x, Netscape Navigator 3.x,
Internet Explorer/Outlook Express/Windows Address Book,
MS Outlook 98/2000, Juno, WordPerfect 8.x, Eudora 3.x and 4.x,
and Pegasus Mail 3.x. (It can't help you with Netscape 6, though.)
Dawn should also work with other programs that can use/import/export
LDAP/LDIF, Comma Separated Value (CSV), plain text, or one-per-line
or comma-separated formats or store addresses in a text file suitable
for extraction. Note: This is a beta version, so it could be buggy
and/or unstable. The developer welcomes your comments.
