Outlook express, What happened to my mail folders??


  • My file folders have dissapeared from outlook and are now in my documents with a dbx file that I cannot open.  How do I restore the files to outlook express?   thanks.

  • If you go to your mail folder under docu&settings-user-local settings-application data-microsoft-outlook express, you will see inbox.bak or some backup file for your inbox. make a copy of the file and rename it to inbox.dbx (I am guessing this name, look at other extensions).
    Make sure you change windows settings to show hidden files.
