I want to copy my emails from Outlook Express to Outlook 2003, i have been able to copy the address book by exporting it as a csv file from Express and importing that into Outlook 2003. And i have copied the .dbx files from the Win 98 pc onto a cd, but dont know what to do with them now in Outlook 2003 as all of the things i have read do not appear to cover Outlook 2003 in XP specifically. Any help would be appreciated.

Open Outlook express
Open Outook
In outlook,
go to file ---> import and export --> Import Internet mail and addresses --> Outlook express 4.x, 5 --> click next
and then finish selecting the appropriate options you want there .
It willl start to import from Outlook express and it should be done depending on the emails you have got ..

For this to happen , you should have all the DBX file stored on the CD copied to the hard disk (which is one of the easiest way to get the import )
