I am finally upgrading to a new PC and leaving the steam age behind!  I need to know if there is an easy way to find and copy all of the attachments that came with emails sent to Outlook Express.  I know the files are *.dbx but I wondered where the attachments were stored and if I could locate them all by searching for *.do, *.jpg etc?


Any help gratefully appreciated.

All emails using Outlook Express...are encoded.  You will only be able to separate attachments individuallly, after opening each email.


If you had saved the individual attachments somewhere else on your hard drive...then you would have been able to put them all in one folder.
