WAB files are the Address book files and the DBX are the resident E-Mails.

It is not that simple to as copying dbx file from one to another because registry files and locations become important.

Here is a Site that will help you understand and set the files in the right spot. Pay particular attention to the complete backup section.

Let us know if that helps.
