Hey friends, I am Stephen a Fitness blogger and sharing my technology experience with you. Though I am not a technical guy but once I got stuck in a big technical issue all because of my mom. Actually the thing is that a few days back my mom bought a brand new laptop. She asked me to transfer all the data from our old pc to the new laptop including emails and all. I had copied all the hard drive files including pictures, media files, Excel sheets, word docs and all other files manually with the help of my data traveller.
Now the only thing that was left behind in our old pc was the data of Outlook Express files which contained textual mailing data, attachments, media files, presentations, notes and contact list. I tried to import the old data but I failed.
P.S I tried these steps:
File->Import and Export->and then Outlook Express Files but it did not give me an option to browse to the folder it just said that “There are none to import like it only works if Outlook Express is installed????”
After, spending almost 2 hours of search I found it is because of change of email platform. In our old machine, we used to work on Outlook Express and Outlook Express keeps all the data in DBX file and our new laptop is built with Outlook 2007 and Outlook keeps all user data in PST format.
Here is more about DBX file: Outlook Express which is a basic emailing client of Microsoft uses DBX file format to keep users’ data. Though it is a basic emailing client it offers very limited services as compared to Outlook. Outlook Express is basically designed for the students and home users. On the other hand Outlook is the featured emailing client of Microsoft that comes with a number of smart inbuilt functions such as:
- To do bar & Ribbon interface
- Calendar & Meeting Scheduler
- Group Email
- Notes & Journals
- Address book
- Social Integration
- Personal manager
- Multiple Account Handling
- Exchange Support
- Outlook Mobile Integration
Below are the few errors associated with Outlook Express which causes pathetic user experience:

Successful Migration from Outlook Express to Outlook:
For dealing with such numerous errors my mom used to try “Basic Outlook Express repair kit” but unfortunately she could not resolve such issues regularly. So she decided to go for a newer Outlook. At the time of migration, I was stuck in a critical situation and did not know “What to do now?” so my mom suggested me to hire a technical expert for solving this issue but I refused. I wanted to save the money for my new fitness blog. I searched more and more about Outlook Express file to Outlook migration on technical forums.
There I found about Stellar DBX to PST Converter. Then I started my research for the same. I checked the ratings and reviews of this software on various software downloading sites such as Cnet.com and found satisfactory reviews.
