We did just that but some new email in outlook express disappeared in outlook (perhaps due to corruption?). We can select those missing email in outlook express to export/dragged out to desktop as individual files, but if i try to drag these files back to outlook 2007 it does not import them but rather just creates a new mail with them as attachment. how annoying!

Before importing express data into Outlook 2007, there is a need to convert DBX file into PST format. After that, User would be able to import PST file in Outlook 2007 manually. However, there is software available in market for DBX to PST conversion which is developed by trusted vendor (Stellar Phoenix).
