    I have upgraded my client's laptop from Windows XP to 7. I committed a cardinal sin, didn't follow my own procedure and neglected to backup Outlook Express! However, the .dbx files are all in the Application data folder that I did back up! However, when I choose Import in Thunderbird, there is nothing to import from! Is there some way I can manually open the dbx folders and get Thunderbird to recognise them?

    She is with Techademic.net and I am not sure how to get to her emails on their website!

    The bottom-most link that Rob provided you with will allow you to download and save a small wlsetup-web.exe file.

    When you run it and the Windows Live Essentials 2012 window appears, make sure to select the option to choose what to install, then select to install ONLY the Mail program.

    If you fail to do this, the ENTIRE Windows Live list of programs and extras will install.
