Not an Outlook issue - suggest you repost to an Outlook Express group.

OK, this just ain't working...

I've used XP for a while, but left my previous notebook at home because
there was a new one waiting for me...

I installed Office 2003 in it.

Then on my portable HD I have every single .dbx file I had in my Express...
folders, inbox, you name it...

I have every message I sent or received since 2002...

There wasn't ANY method proposed here that made it work...

Not importing into Windows Mail or Outlook 2003...

Copying all files to My Documents (where I am supposed to have all the
privileges) just didn't work...

I'm not a computer dumb, but as said by Thomas, I didn't know you had to had
a PhD in Vista to be able to recall messages...

So what happened when you tried to import into Windows mail?

I browse to the folder that have all my dbx files (including folders.dbx) and
it reads "NO ITEMS MATCH YOUR SEARCH".

But I'd rather import straight into Outlook 2003... I just thought that
since WMail is the "new" OExpress it wouldn't even blink...

Foolish me...

No items match your search!

I know exactly where my .dbx's are... on my C: HD and non-marked as
read-only...

But I'd rather import straight into Outlook 2003 and that's not happening as
well...

not working... I have all my .dbx in my HD and Windows Mail does not see
them...
I have a PrtScr of it saved but apparently I cannot upload a .gif here...

When you say ALL dbx files, does that include the file called Folders.dbx?

Upload your screen shot to one of the many free image-hosting web sites and
post the link to it here.
