My main computer crashed and data has been retrieved from the hard drive including all my Outlook Express dbx files. There are four years of e-mails in these files and critical that I be able to open them.
My only working computer runs XP. It has Outlook Express installed on it and was once used for e-mail, but no longer and not set up with my provider to send or receive if that matters at all.
I have read many explanations on how to open dbx files on various sites - every one is different and most are beyond my level of expertise.
Is there a fairly painless way to open these files? I don't want to attempt anything that could damage them. Please....any solution please walk me through in the simplest terms - I'm 64 but pretend you're explaining the process to a 7 year old. Yes, I'm that lame!
Sorry for writing a novel and thanks to anyone who will take their time to help the clueless!
