Before a complete computer restore, I backed up my messages on a CD. I have since transferred them back to the HD but am unable to restore them to Outlook Express. If I use File-Import-Messages, then tell it where the messages are stored, it says it cannot find them. (I know they are there) I had no problem restoring the Address Book by the same method but cannot restore the Messages. Any suggestions ?

You could try restoring them directly from the backup CD.

Tried that -- Outlook Express' Import function says that there are no message in the file. However I can see the folders with the extension .dbx.
