      I am doing a clean install of Windows, and i'd like to save all my old emails in Outlook express. I know in Regular outlook, there is a .pst file, I was wondering if there is something simillar in Outlook express?
      Thanks guys!

      there are pst's in outlook express but i've been hearing about people having problems with imorting pst files in outlook express 6. just thought i'd give you a warning before you start pulling your hair out. and no, haven't heard of a way around it. it either imports them clean or looks at you funny and gives you the bird.

      No there are not .pst files in Outlook Express.
      Outlook Express saves each individual folder as a .dat file. So your inbox will be called inbox.dat, and they are buried down deep in the system folders, C:\Windows for 95/98/ME and Documents and Settings for 2000/XP.
      Also, the address book is a .pab file.

      OI! That's still wrong, depending on what version of Outlook Express you're using. The last two versions (5&6) use .DBX files to store emails.

      Crikey, you're write. I meant to type DBX and my mind was elsewhere, thanks for the correction.

      For switching DBX and moving to Outlook PST, DBX to PST Converter software is one of the popular and safe solutions that allows migration of multiple DBX files to PST. This tool provides you rapid conversion facility without any third-party tool support. The tool is very easy to handle without any difficulty.
