Windows 7: Convert Outlook Express Folders and Address Book to Outlook in WIN 7

Convert Outlook Express Folders and Address Book to Outlook in WIN 7

I have over 13 years of Outlook Express folders and addresses that I desperately need to convert to Outlook 2007. I should have imported them into Outlook before I made the "Easy File Transfer" to the new Win 7 machine, but didn't know I needed to do that. Several years ago I had imported the files into Outlook, although that data did transfer it is now way out-of-date and full of duplicates.

The up-to-date data is still in my old machine and also in an external hard drive backup. I have isolated the Outlook Express personal folders into .dbx format and the addresses into .wab format.

Is there a way this can be reformatted into Outlook? Or is there some other way? I would probably also need to delete what is already in Outlook first, or I would have many more duplicates.

I welcome any suggestions.

See if this Microsoft tutorial can help.
Import your messages or account from Outlook Express to Outlook - Outlook - Office.com

Please note : there is ........
a link for Outlook and OE installed in the SAME computer
a link for Outlook and OE installed in DIFFERENT computers.

Hope that helps.

Editing ...... I don't use Outlook nor did I ever use OE, so I can't help you much other than to offer you the link above.

You are welcome.

Sorry about the duplicates.
Perhaps someone expert in Mail could offer a solution to delete those.
