Help with restoring email


  • I need help.  I have had to reinstall Windows 8 twice on my pc (with the help of the company tech support), and the first time, they backed up my email from OE 2007, onto a portable hard drive.  The second time I did it, but I can't be sure I did it correctly.  The first time, the tech support put my emails back for me.  I know I do have a copy of it on my hard drive, but all I see are the .dbx and .bak files.  Now, I am told I have to restore it all myself... I have NO clue how to do it.  I have windows 8, but on the desktop, I am running office 2007.  Can someone help me? I hate to sound ignorant, but I am in WAY over my head and I need someone to be as basic as possible to walk me through this.  There are really important emails that are imperative that I get back.  Thank you!
