I have backed up my mails from Outlook Express. Those mails contain my 4 years of data and it stored as ‘DBX’ file. I am looking for help to convert these files to ‘PST’ files. So, I can see those mails to present version of Outlook if I need. I don’t want to import those files to the present Outlook as it will increase the file size and I don’t want to combine the mails. Please help me to convert Outlook Express ‘DBX’ file to Outlook 2000 ‘PST’ files.
Any help will greatly be appreciated.
Convert Outlook Express DBX to Outlook 2003 PST
You have mentioned the answer, in your question. But, I will make some fine tunes for your.
Since you don't need to mix both emails to one PST file, you can import the backup for a fresh pst file. Once it is imported, you can disconnect it from outlook and save wherever you want.
Here is what you have to do,
Go to tools -> Account Settings in your current Outlook application.
Click New & provide other relevant information to create the profile in Outlook. and be specific to direct a separate (new) pst file to save incoming mails.
Import your previous database to this newly created database and you are done. Your data is not mixed with the current data.
Hope this would assist.
