I'm trying to get Outlook Express mail into a Vista's Windows Mail and I can't find a straight-forward document on this anywhere.

Thanks for the suggestion; but, the old system doesn't run--bad board. So the transfer wizard is out.
Following your instructions was pretty straight forward until I located the folder where the DBX files are stored and selected it as the path. Here's a Windows quirk I ran into: If I double-clicked on the Outlook Express folder that contained the files, the wizard entered . . . Outlook Express\Outlook Express as the path. In other words, double clicking the Outlook Express folder doubled the number of Outlook Express folders in the path. I would then get an error message about that folder containing no files to import.
After I cought on to that wierd thing happening and corrected for it, your suggestion worked out fine.
