Microsoft Outlook Express is by far the most popular email client. It comes pre-installed with Windows; it is free, convenient, and advanced enough for those stepping up from Web-based email.
The main advantage of Outlook Express over Webmail is the ability to keep your complete communication history for years to come.
If you’ve used Outlook Express for some time, you’ve probably accumulated a huge pile of archived messages.
But imagine that archive becoming suddenly unavailable to you, and you’ll know how much you have to lose!
Why would that happen? Outlook Express keeps email messages in a proprietary-format database, which in turn is stored in DBX files, each DBX file representing an email folder.
Once these files reach a certain size, they tend to break. Another reason for losing an Outlook Express email archive is file or data corruption that can result from a simple crash of the Outlook Express application.
If the crash happens while Outlook Express is writing to a DBX file, that file will inevitably fail.
Can you do something to get your email archive back? With Microsoft tools, probably not.
There’s no easy way to recover corrupt Outlook Express databases in Windows. But all is not lost! Meet Recovery ToolBox for Outlook Express an easy tool to recover corrupt Outlook Express databases!
