Hello! are you facing a problem while migrating Outlook Express to Exchange Server. Don’t worry, here in this article, I will explain how to import Outlook Express DBX files to Exchange Server in easy steps.


I have Outlook Express DBX files in my local storage. Unlike MS Outlook, Outlook Express stores the mailbox information of a folder into a single DBX file. I.e., for the Inbox folder, I have an Inbox.dbx file. Similarly, for Drafts folder, Drafts.dbx, etc. I have such 20 folders DBX file which constitutes around 12 GB of data.

To be honest, I want these files in my Exchange Server account. I have a Hosted Exchange Server account, which is a really concerning thing for me. I can sync my Outlook Express mailboxes to the Exchange Server account using an Outlook email client. But, there is no such Outlook connector for Hosted Exchange Server.

Quick Solution:

So, I take the help of a powerful DBX Migrator tool. The utility provides a direct option to import DBX files into Exchange Server & Hosted Exchange Server accounts. It will only need login credentials of Exchange Server account I.e., Username, Password, Server IP & Port Number. Also, migrate DBX files into other savings like Office 365, etc.
