    In MS outlook on the file menu, you have import and export
    then import internet mail and addresses, then just follow the instructions.

    I think he means he want to import them on another PC, so with this method you first have to get the mails to the new PC in Outlook Express.
    Open your Outlook Express on the new PC, close it and reboot (otherwise files are in use), go to C:\Documents and Settings\%username%\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities\{6254DBAF-E73B-4F28-8E04-07A70F9694E7}\Microsoft\Outlook Express and overwrite the *.dbx files with yours and open your Outlook Express again. Normally you will have your mails there.
    Than open Outlook and go to Import and follow the steps like loudman said.

    To remove all the mails in Outlook Express afterwards, just reboot, go to the same map again and delete all *.dbx files, nexttime Outlook Express will be opened it will create empty *.dbx files.

    I assumed he had already copied the files since he knew they were dbx files. But sorry for the over look :)

    File -> Import & Export ->Import Internet E-Mails and adresses
    than select Outlook Express and check what you want to import (Adress book, Mails) and that's it.
