Outlook Express, as you know, is a personal information management service from the tech giant Microsoft. The e-mail service tool is offered along with the Microsoft Office suite in all versions of Windows operating systems. Outlook Express stores your account settings and email data in DBX files. But, in the occasion of a system failure, or while you switch to a brand new computer, these data and settings are not displayed by the Outlook Express application program. Well, you don’t have to worry over this simple issue as our Outlook Express help team suggest that issues like these can be resolved in just a matter of few minutes. All you need to do is to configure the Outlook Express to read the DBX files that you have recovered. Here in this post, I have come up with some easy steps to do this. Let’s see how:
- Before you begin the process, you need to ensure that Outlook Express application is not presently running on your computer.
- Now, you need to right-click on an empty space on your desktop screen and then, click on the “New Folder” option from the list of options in the subsequent menu.
- Then, you need to copy the DBX files that you have recovered into the newly created folder. If you are transferring the files from a different computer, then you need to use a flash drive. For this, you need to first connect the flash drive to your computer and then click on the Windows “Start” menu on the left-hand side bottom corner of your computer screen. After that, click on the
“My Computer” icon from the list of options in the Start menu and double-click on the flash drive icon.
- Next up, you need to drag and drop the DBX files into the folder on your desktop.
- Following which, you need to launch the Outlook Express program on your computer and click on the “Tools” tab followed by “Options” in the program window.
- Once you do that, click on the “Maintenance” tab at the top of the pop-up window and then, click on the “Store Folder.”
- After that, hit the “Change” and then, you need to navigate to the folder containing your DBX files and press the “OK” button.
- Finally, you need to restart Outlook Express for the changes that you made to take effect.
By now, Outlook Express reads DBX files and start displaying your e-mail data.
