I don't use Outlook, but I'd think the general procedure would be to:

1: Export from Outlook Express to location X

2: Open Outlook, use the import function, and navigate to location X.

Is that what you are doing?

Can you export in more than 1 format? If so, try another format.

It's also a good idea to make manual copies of all of your Outlook Express files (dbx, etc) in case your corrupt the originals during the export/import process.

Email export and import functions haven't improved in the last 10 years, so welcome to reality. I hate changing email programs for that reason.

There are applications out there designed to convert DBX to PST, but I don't know if they are required.

ignatzatsonic, outlook express and the emails are on one pc and office 2007 is on another pc.

Can you export to a DVD or USB thumb drive? Or temporarily install the Outlook Express drive into the Outlook PC?

Yes, the whole process is pathetic. There was nothing wrong with Outlook Express to begin with, but they got rid of it.

It's apparently a willful decision--other fish to fry, I guess.

try this download from CNET

DbxConv - CNET Download.com

it appears that once (2009) it was freeware--but now--who knows

that's why I use Mozilla Thunderbird

Hi,

As Outlook do not support any option to import DBX file directly, so I would like to suggest you to convert Outlook express file into Outlook 2007 you can search it over Google by simply typing convert DBX to PST. For more details you can visit and understand how you can search it over the Google. Let me google that for you
