How to find files and folders


Trying to save E-mail messages (Outlook Express) to floppy to free up hard drive space. No problems there, but they are saved as a .dbx file. I don't recognize the extension, and none of the word processors in my computer will open the file and read it. I checked Ken's list of file extensions, and it is not there. Can you tell me what to do to open the .dbx files, or is there another way to save the OE files that I can read?
