I HAVE TWO PCs. ONE IS LOADED WITH WINDOWS 7 AND ANOTHER IS LOADED WITH WINDOWS XP. I HAVE WORKED IN MICROSOFT OUTLOOK FOR SOME MONTHS IN THE PC WITH WINDOWS 7. BUT NOW I HAVE STARTED WORKING WITH OUTLOOK EXPRESS IN THE PC WITH WINDOWS XP. NOW , I AM FACING ONE PROBLEM OF TAKING BACKUP OF MESSAGES FROM MICROSOFT OUTLOOK(.PST FORMAT) TO OUTLOOK EXPRESS(.DBX FORMAT). I NEED THIS TO BE SOLVED ANYWAY.

Did you try Outlook Express's File--Import--Messages--Microsoft Outlook option ?
It should be straightforward. You can also simply copy the .pst file to WinXP and configure Outlook profile. Then when you do Outlook Express Import, it will ask you to choose Outlook user profile, choose the one you just created and entire messages will be imported.

If you are using IMAP you should be able to retrieve the full inbox.

But if you are not, then bkmgy is correct, you can export as .pst and then OE should import the file as a Microsoft Outlook file.
