Hello quamtech,

By importing a file, do you mean attach the file as attachment to an email?  

Yes, you can import MSNBAK file to Outlook Express.  If you are unable to do, in OE, go to Tools > Options > Security.  Uncheck Block all files

Hope this helps!

Open MSN Explorer, select settings, email settings, import and export. You'll find the option to restore an MSN Backup file, which is what the MSNBAK file is.  If you want to save individual emails in \My Documents, you would probably want to drag and drop them there and they will saved as a file with a .EML extension.
Alternatively, leave them on the server - you have lots of space up there and you can access your mail at http://www.hotmail.com from any Internet connected computer.

We no longer have the MSN account. By import I mean import all the e-mail messages in the .MSNBAK file into outlook or Outlook Express so we can access the e-mails.

You cannot convert MSNBAK file into readable emails in Outlook.  If your account was active, there may be a way to move your emails from webmail to Outlook.

You can try to open MSNBAK file with Wordpad, and see if you can get the text of emails from that.
