I have been using Outlook Express 4. Before I got rid of my old computer, I have saved all the message files from C:/Windows/App Data/Microsoft/Outlook Express to a CD. All the files were named *.dbx (i.e. inbox.dbx, Sent items.dbx, etc.) Now that I got a new computer and reinstalled Outlook Express, I could not import my old messages. I have noticed that the message file names now end with *.idx and *.mbx. Help!

Thanks in advance, Roderick

Thanks Bruintje. Your answer actually gave me the idea to upgrade to Outlook Express 5. Now I was able to import my old messages.

cheers,
Roderick
