  • The manual solution starts with finding or locating the corrupted DBX file(s). You need to start the Registry Editor to find the location where Outlook Express stores its files. Follow the steps given below to know how to do this:

    • Press Win+R to open the Run window.
    • Type regedit into it and press enter.
    • The Registry Editor window will be opened. In the left hand side pane, expand the folders in this manner:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER > Identities > XYZ > Software > Microsoft > Outlook Express > 5.0

    • Now in the right hand side pane, locate the Store Root settings from the list and double-click it.
    • The path will be shown where Outlook Express stores its files. Copy the full path from there.

    Once you have copied the path, you need to move the mailbox file(s). Follow the steps given below to know how to do this:

    • First of all close the Outlook Express program if it is opened.
    • Now paste the path (copied earlier) on your Windows directory and press enter.
    • You can copy or move all the files from this location to a new location. After that, delete all the files from the original location if you have copied them.

    In the third step, you need to import the DBX file(s) into Outlook Express. It would be easy for Outlook Express to import the file(s) without causing any trouble. Follow the steps given below to know how to do this:

    • Start Outlook Express on your system.
    • Click on File menu > Import.
    • The Outlook Express Import window will be opened. Select the Outlook Express version in the list from which you want to import the emails. If you are unsure with that, you can select Outlook Express 6. Click on Next.
    • Now click on Browse to select the directory where the files are saved. This is the very same directory in which you have moved the files from original location earlier. Click on Next.
    • Select the items you want to import. For example: you can import All folders or the Selected folders. Click on Next.

    Now start your Outlook Express and check your mailbox folders again.
