Well, if you decided to keep a copy of your inbox on the mail server, the matter is straightforward, just put in your account details on Outlook and Outlook will do the rest.

Edit:
Just go to your mail server and check if all your mails are there. If there, you have a copy of the inbox on the server.

So if you don't have access to Outlook Express, how are you going to extract or back up your settings in the first place?
