Default Recover corrupted .dbx file in Outlook Express

Is there a way to repair a corrupted .dbx file for OE? When opening the inbox no messages are displayed, other than an error message suggesting that there may not be enough disk space or memory.

Thanks in advance!

Hi,CharlesGilbert

You need to check if the problem is caused by a corruption of the Outlook Express dbx data file, or caused by other reasons. To do that, you need to do as follows:


1. Locate the dbx file corresponding to your mailbox, by following the instructions below:


https://www.datanumen.com/outlook-ex...ir/finddbx.htm


2. After locate the dbx file, make sure Outlook Express is closed.

3. Make a backup of the dbx file.

4. Delete the original dbx file.

5. Start Outlook Express, if you still get the same error, then chances are that your installation of Outlook Express is incorrect. You need to uninstall and reinstall Outlook Express. Note Outlook Express is included in IE so you may need to reinstall IE together.

If the error never appear, then your original dbx file is corrupt, you can use DataNumen Outlook Express Repair at https://www.datanumen.com/outlook-express-repair/ to repair and recover the emails in it, and then import the recovered emails back to Outlook Express by following the instructions at https://www.datanumen.com/outlook-ex...air/import.htm

Good luck!

You need in OE-Mail Recovery. DBX Extract tool
Use that utility to pull the emails from the inbox
Then delete the inbox.dbx
Reopen the OE and a new inbox.dbx will be created
Create a few new folders and drag those messages you extracted back into those folders. Do not let the inbox get to full. Hence create other folders.

Maybe you should look through the sites of Microsoft's products.
