How do I import old Eudora emails into Eudora OSE?

I have a client running Win7 64-bit on a Dell Optiplex 780 with 4GB RAM and a large hard drive.  A set of Eudora files were salvaged from the hard drive of a very old PC (Win98) that had Eudora 4.3 on it.  All I have now are these files (some of which are .mbx files).

I want to import the messages into Eudora OSE, but it doesn't see them, and neither does Emailchemy 11.2.1.  I have attached a copy of the directory.

Thanks, jcimarron.  I couldn't export from the old version because all I had was a folder recovered from the old system.  No way to export them.  I did figure out an answer, though.

I uninstalled Eudora OSE and installed Eudora 7.x.x (whatever the latest version is).  I ran Eudora, then shut it down.  I moved the recovered folder with all the files to the location Eudora had created the new files (c:\user\username\appdata\roaming\Qualcomm), and that worked.

I'll go ahead and close this question, and thank you for trying!
splait--I wonder if post #4 here is of any help
