    Rebuilding Outlook Express.

    My PC just got blown to bits by a virus.
    I hope to be able to rescue the data files including those that define such as accounts, rules and contain emails.
    How can I restore my OE as closely as possible to its original configuration and emails using these files?
    Many thanks.

    Are you able to get the *.dbx and *.wab files from the HDD/Hard Disk Drive? The *.dbx files are your messages and the *.wab file is the Windows XP Windows Address Book which is used by Outlook Express. If you can get those files you can Import them to the OE. WAB is located in Start, All Programs, Accessories.
