If you go into Outlook you can select Import -> Import from from another Program or File -> Outlook Express and select the DBX File. You can also use the same method to import from other PST files.

esala,

You cannot directly convert DBX files to PST files.  You need to use the programs Outlook Express and Outlook.

1. If the DBX files are from another computer, copy all the files from the  data folder, including IDX and MDX files.  
2. Import them into Outlook Express.
3. Make Outlook the default email client.
4. Restart Microsoft Outlook and Outlook will automatically prompts you to import the OE data files.

If the DBX files are already on the same computer, you need to only start from step 3 above.
