Do you know where the 2GB file is?

If so, find the new inbox.dbx file and rename it, substituting your 2GB inbox.dbx file and see if that works?

Hello netxm,

2 GB is the max size of DBX file.  You need to extract the emails to different folders.

OR
Outlook Express Repair Tool - free 30 trial version

All the programs will extract emails from DBX file as eml files.  Once extracted, drag and drop the files into Outlook Express reading pane.

Hope this helps!
