Microsoft Outlook provides a simple import utility to do exactly this, it's on the "File" menu. Your Outlook Express files could be stored in a few different locations which depends upon your OS. I recommend that you perform a file search for *.dbx across all of your local hard drives (OE will not let you use network storage as a mailbox storage location) to ensure that you find all of the files.

In outlook, File>Import&Export>ImportInternet Mail and Addresses > Outlook Express 4.x, 5.x, 6.x
Check the desired options: import mail, Import Address book, and/or Import Rules

Actually when you setup the Outlook program it should have automatically asked if you wanted to import all the Outlook Express settings and Mail into outlook.

If you chose not to accept that offer then all you need do is import the items from the Import Option under the File drop down menu on the top tool bar.
