I'm trying to migrate my inlaw's email from WIN98/OutlookExpress (6.0) PC to new WINXP PRO/Outlook (2002) Computer.  I copied the .dbx files but can't figure out how to get them all imported into Outlook.  The import process seems to proceed as one might expect but I only get some of the mail messages; 438 of what must be roughly 2000.  There are 103 .dbx files and only some of the folders get imported.  Any ideas would be greatly apprecited.
