Specs: Windows 7, Pentium 4 2GHz/4 gigs
I read articles here. Also I installed some programs for opening of the file. .dbx the file weighs 19.1 MB. All programs with which tried to open, the file opens, but there simply empty fields. It isn't specified from anybody, to whom, and what is this letter. And actually I do not know what it should be kept there. I know that the email database. I have Outlook Express 5 and OC Windows 7. So please help me what to do?

The situation such that is database file. If You are sure this is the mail file, then you can still try:
1. Add this file to dbx file mail C:\Documents and Settings\User\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities\{numbers}\Microsoft\Outlook Express.
2. Try creating an empty folder in MS Outlook Express (this should be created similar to dbx file in the above folder), then replace bdx-file of the same name. You must remember that folders.dbx - settings, other dbx - mail, and contacts - only wab.
3. To try applications - Microsoft Outlook Express - OE Mail Recovery
4. Look at this authoritative source and there you will find good advice

Is this an email attachment you're discuusing, and not from someone you know etc.? If so I'd be very inclined to delete it; and then start a series of cleanup routines - just incase it brought something nasty with it. Need more suggestions re' clean up, post back...

Clarification as to wherethe file is and so on would helpful; as itmaybe legit, and notonetodelete?

Just discovered it.'s the database file for a use in Outlook Express; so not wise to dump

But is it yours - as in it didn't arrive via an email as an attachment?

dbx files are not intended to be opened. As given, they form part of the database for Outlook Express and can only be accessed from within that program. They are "boxes" such as Inbox, Sent Items etc.

What is the full name of the file and where are you seeing it?

[Just for info, not all files can be opened]

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
