Hi kuwyz0,
"Import messages from Outlook Express
When Outlook and Outlook Express are installed on the same computer-
In Outlook, on the File menu, click Import and Export.
Click Import Internet Mail and Addresses, and then click Next.
Click Outlook Express.
Select the Import mail check box.
Click Next.
Click Finish.
To save a copy of the import summary to your Inbox, click Save in Inbox.

Another way this can be done is:

Open Outlook Express

Click on File > Export > Messages

You then get a message `This will export messages from Outlook Express to Microsoft outlook or microsoft exchange`

When you click ok all of you messages are copied i.e. Inbox, sent items etc
