    Hi everyone.....My wifes PC had a catastrophic HD failure last week. We use an off site backup facility so we had the important data backed up to be downloaded back to the PC. We did that over alst two days but I can't find the email file. I imported the address book back ok...

    Does anyone know the file name or extension for Outlook Express emails so I can go find it and put it back where it belongs?

    *.dbx on my system

    (where * is the OE folder name eg Inbox.dbx).

    OE files are MBX or DBX depending on the version of OE you're running. (If it helps)
