Outlook Express 6 is an email client that works with Windows operating system. It is compatible to POP3 and IMAP and it stores email data items in the form of .mbx or .dbx in the hard disk. All the Outlook Express file and folder have own separate DBX file name such as Inbox.dbx, Sent Items .dbx, Drafts .dbx etc. When .mbx or .dbx file gets corrupt, you need to recover file and folder like inbox, send items, draft and new created folders.

If DBX file backup process is interrupted due to any reason, then dbx file may get corrupt.
