Hello everyone,
I backed up my outlook.pst file from OE5 before I formatted. outlook.pst is a file which someone told me has all my messages in it. Now I need to put it back to use with OE5.

How should I go about doing that?
Thanks,
-Dan

Outlook Express does not use PST files. Outlook 97/98/2000 use them. Outlook Express uses DBX files to store its data. Do you have those files?
