Welcome to Seven Forums hanan. I don't use a mail client myself, but have seen that message many times on this forum. There are 2 things that are often suggested.

First it is suggested to create a new folder in OE called Mail, and put the .dbx files there and point to that folder when using the Browse button when exporting

The 2nd suggestion is to make sure the files are not set to read only.

Open the folder> Select all the files> Right click them and click Properties> Make sure the Read only check box is not checked
