|It's been many years since I messed around with the OE files. But I remember that there was an 'index' file for all the DBX files. I thought maybe you hadn't copied it along with all the DBXs. But I just checked my OE files and I don't see that index file. I'm at a loss. |
If you don't have any luck restoring. You can find a couple of programs (not free) that will extract your messages out of the DBX files at http://www.oehelp.com/.
I remember using the $9 one many years ago and I 'think' it worked pretty well.
I assume that you still have the saved DBX files. One thing you might try is copying them again, but this time deleting the new inbox.dbx file before copying in the old files.
FWIW to XP users: When you click on the 'Command Prompt' you are just causing the 'Command prompt' to be displayed. This prompt gives you access to NTVDM.EXE, the 'NT Virtual DOS Manager'.
