      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.
