Hello, and thank you for your time and patience.

 

SWMBO's PC died, a power issue killed the motherboard but the hard drives are accessible with a dock.

 

Her replacement PC runs Windows 7 Professional.

 

I copied the .pst and .dbx files from the Microsoft Outlook Express folder intending to import them for use in Mozilla Thunderbird, but it seems that is not an available option, as Outlook Express needs to be installed for importing files, and Outlook is not compatible with Win7.

What other options for an email solution might there be, or is there a workaround?

 

 

Her email is accessible online, but all her contacts, sent mail, drafts, etc. are in the Outlook files.

 

Edit: Further searching has turned up a second batch of .dbx files in a different location on the OS HDD.
