OE and .dbx files

Hey all.

I was looking through an old hard drive of mine, and I found that the .dbx files from my old copy of OE are still there. Is there any way to access / read them without screwing up my current OE settings? Keep in mind that I’m pretty tech-illiterate when it comes to these things.


Yes. Open Outlook Express and go to File|Import|Messages. Select Microsoft Outlook Express 6, hit Next, and then select Import mail from an OE6 Store Directory. Then select the directory where you found the .dbx files. This should pull the messages into your current identity without affecting your email settings.
