    You do have a problem, actually 2. The first is that Outlook Express [WinXP and earlier] was discontinued with WinVista [changed to Mail] and no such E-Mail Client included with Win7. The other is that a .dbx file can be Imported into Microsoft Office Outlook which you may not have. This site may have help:
