      Thanks,

      But does Vista store all received and sent mails there, beacuse the size of inbox and sent mailboxes in
      %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Mail\ Local folders
      are less size than size of received and sent mails in microsoft outlook

            Cached mode?
            If so, search for .ost files

              To be more precisely, I should import mailboxes from one PC which has XP to other PC with Vista. PC with XP has outlook express and format is .dbx, but which is it appropriate mailboxes format and where are placed in Vista?
              At the and how to transfer mailboxes from XP to Vista?

                This link should help.

                You are moving from Outlook Express to Vista's free version, Windows mail.

                I believe you can use Windows Easy Transfer wizard as well but exporting to a PST file is straight forward anyway.

                  Sounds to me like it's going from Outlook Express to Outlook 2003/2007 hooked up to an Exchange server. Just export the Outlook Express mail, then open Outlook 2003/2007 and import it. Make sure that you have set up the Exchange account in Outlook 2003/2007 first so that the .ost file is created. When you then import the Outlook Express file it will be placed in the .ost file and thus also placed in the Exchange Server's mail store.
