Dbx to pst converter for my Microsoft Outlook (2010 or 2013) Email Client


I am looking for dbx to pst converter that converts my XP’s Outlook Express emails data (.dbx) to my Outlook 2010(.pst), it would also be great if the app is compatible with the newer version of MS Outlook 2013 since my wife is more inclined to it. I wouldn't mind per se if it converts the dbx to outlook 2010 since I am pretty used to this email platform and have no plan to migrate to 2013.

you can simply import them.
    In Outlook, on the File menu, click Import and Export.
    Click Import Internet Mail Account Settings, and then click Next.
    Click Outlook Express, and then click Next.
    Follow the remaining instructions in the Import and Export Wizard.

Hi Akashay,

Since you mentioned app I am assuming software recommendation for the said purpose. I did a search and tried some of them on my machine. This dbx to pst converter came closed to your specification.
Here what you will be able to do with it:

1. Check if you really need all those emails in the first place using their view mode which is free.
2. The software to convert dbx to pst for both version of MS Outlook (2007, 2010, 2013).

Note: If you ever migrate to Outlook Express to Windows Live Mail (free email client) then you can use the software for the purpose as well.
