Backup, Transfer Outlook Express DBX

John Ratliff: “My sister is a missionary in Zambia, Africia and she’s home to visit our mother. While home her Dell computer (out of warranty) went on the blink. It powers up sometimes then dies. She bought a new HP notebook and she’s trying to get her Outlook Express folders from her old Dell over to the HP. Somehow she’s lost Outlook Express altogether on her Dell… do you know where the folders for Outlook Express reside on the hard drive? If she was to download Outlook Express again on the Dell, would it pickup her old folders or not?”

I believe you’re looking to transfer the DBX files – we posted a tutorial on how to back ’em up a while ago. Step through the process on the Dell, and then copy the files you find in that folder to the same location on her HP.
