Specs: Windows 7
Can the email files on Windows XP with Outlook Express be imported to Windows 7.1 with Outlook 2016? I have copied the Outlook Express files to a flash drive. The files have a *.dbx extention.

Thank you for any help, it will be appreciated

The dbx files are your Outlook Express boxes, such as Inbox, Outbox, Sent Items, etc.

They are only any use to you if you want to overwrite Outlook Express files on a computer that has just had a new install of Outlook Express. Even then it is not the official way of migrating emails. They are incompatible with Outlook, particularly modern cloud based versions.
