I have recently upgraded (FINALLY!) from Windows ME to a new computer Windows 7 with MS Office 2010. I am having troubles transferring my emails from Outlook Express to Outlook 2010. I have looked at several of the questions on this forum. I have saved my emails on my old computer (.dbx files) and have transferred them to my new computer. I have tried importing them that way (File - Import, etc).

However, I also read that you cannot import from Outlook Express any more. I tried downloading Windows Live, which had me create a hotmail account. However, I do not see any place on there to import my old files. I would appreciate any help!

Hi,

I am afraid there is no direct method to import dbx files to Outlook 2010. If your old computer is still with you, you can install Outlook application in your old computer. After installing Outlook, you can just import all the emails from Outlook Express in to Outlook application. This will convert the dbx file to pst, then you can transfer the pst file to your new computer.
