Hi there
Can anyone recommend a free Outlook Express repair/recovery tool, or dbx mailbox viewer
I have deleted/missing emails to recover, & multiple dbx files that are no longer recognised by Outlook Exp (wont import onto other PC's Outlook Express either )
The hard drive was failing, although I doubt all these dbx mailboxs would be corrupt.

There are several around that claim to be free, but are really only free to download, the ones that are free to use seldom work I find. Went through this process several years ago, and many failed.

At the end of the day I went for recoverytoolbox.com/outlook_express (http://www.recoverytoolbox.com/outlook_express.html) It works, and has gotten back emails that have been badly corrupted or even deleted for years.

Comes down sometimes, how important are the mails for the small amount it costs to get a program that actually works ?

I think from memory the trial goes right through to the point of recovering before payment is required, so you can see if it does what you want.

Never mind the free Viewer I linked is really the trial of above.

Sorry I didn't see this thread when it first appeared.

In the past I have used DBXtract quite successfully. It's available from here: http://www.oehelp.com/Default.aspx along with other useful Outlook Express tools (most of which now appear to be non-free unfortunately).

I have an older version of DBXtract (free version) which I could send you (only 72Kb).

PM me with your email address if you want to try it.

Sorry but i don't think there are any free tools for recovering emails from dbx file are available. Only free try to use demo versions are available which can show preview of emails ready to be recovered but to save them you have to buy the full version of tool.

MS Outlook, being a popular email client has extensive usage within organizations and also among individuals. However, a simple corruption can make your communication system inaccessible. This is because Outlook stores all the data locally in PST files which has all the folders representing all data in Outlook. Upon corruption, PST files stop functioning and nothing can be accessed through Outlook.

Use Outlook PST repair to find an easy solution to Outlook PST related issues. It can easily recover all the data from damaged PST files which includes emails, attachments, images, calendar details, contacts, tasks, notes, etc. It also recovers previously deleted items from Outlook folders. It restores formatting from RTF and HTML messages. The software also offers multiple saving options in .PST, .EML, .DBX and .MSG format.
