    the post before the last post that you had replied :
    ( Bummer, it sounds like the file was corrupted before it was saved. :(
    How long ago did you save the Inbox.dbx file?
    Have you checked the Recycle Bin to see if there are any .bak files present? )

    i have .bak files ,,,, what do i do then ?

    Hi mrasaif

    I have moved your post to your original thread.
    If you do not receive a response after 24 hours, you are welcome to reply to your thread with the word "Bump" to bring your topic back to the top.
    Please do not post in other threads for your issue.
    Thank you.


    Take all the .bak files out of the Recycle Bin and move them to their own folder on the Desktop.
    Make sure you also include the Folders.bak file.

    Change the file extensions from .bak to .dbx.
    Then start Outlook Express and Import those files back into Outlook Express.

    File > Import > Messages > Outlook Express 6 > Next
    *Important*
    Select: Import mail from an OE6 store directory
    OK
    Click: Browse
    and browse to and SELECT the folder on the Desktop that contains the .dbx files that you just renamed.
    OK > Next > Next
    The Import should start immediately.

    Click Finish when it is done.


    Let us know what happens.
