I'm trying to import emails from Outlook Express to Outlook (Office 365), but the older emails are saved as .dbx files.
Does anyone know how to convert these files to .pst so I can import them in?
I have found converter programs online but don't want to pay $70USD plus just to use it once.
Any ideas would be appreciated.

Looks like windows live mail 2012 can import and export them (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cv0NDlqQanU)

I tried this...and managed to import the emails, but I can't find the .pst file. Plus the video is so bad its hard to read what's going on.

Older version of Outlook can import them directly. Maybe 365 can ?

What Ive had to do when moving dbx on old PC to Outlook on new pc, is install Win Live , import dbx using Win Live. Then Import from Win Live to Outlook.
You'll need to google how & where the data is stored, but its not too hard.

If its a Outlook365 email a/c, there wont be a pst.
