Outlook 2000 Message & Mailbox Recovery

By misslee ·
How can I import/recover dbx & mbx files & messages back into Outlook 2000. After a nasty virus, we had no choice but to reformat. Our dbx & mbx files are backed up, but Outlook does not offer an option to import those file extensions. I tried copying them to Windows>Local Settings>Application Data>Microsoft>Outlook but I have had no luck. Any and all suggestions would be greatly appreciated and accurate, functional answers will be truly worshipped!

The question was not about OL Express, it specifically stated Outlook 2000. I had already exhausted all options at MS Tech Support.

Maybe I'm under the wrong impression but I thought that if a user asked a question here, it would be somewhat a 'given' that they had exhausted traditional means of finding an answer. Microsoft was the first place I looked and to no avail.
