Outlook Express DBX file format description (OE DBX file format) with C++ source code DBX reader and examples

Update by Zvonko Tesic: Incomplete or incorrect info is marked with strikeout, followed by a correction.

Original work by Arne Schloh: These are my latest results on the OE dbx file format. I have not completely decoded the file format, but I estimate 90%. I am still working to fill same gaps.


Feel free to send bug reports, comments or code improvements using OE Classic Help & Contact (use 'OE DBX' as the subject line). I cannot promise quick reply (or any reply at all) as I am busy on many projects, but I will do my best.
