    Product Details:

    When I installed the product exe on the Test PC 1, it took less than 30 seconds to finish the installation and as soon as the installation finished, the following window opened up:

    Stellar DBX to PST

    Here you get two options as mentioned below under the 'Select DBX Conversion Type' dialogue box:
  • Convert/Migrate entire mailbox to MS Outlook

  • Convert/Migrate single DBX file to MS Outlook

  • When I opted for converting the entire mailbox, by default 'Select Mailbox' option was enabled.

    In the case of a single DBX file, there were further two options – 'Find DBX' and 'Select DBX.' I tested for a single DBX file.

  • The 'Select' option is helpful, when you know the location of the DBX in the system

  • If you do not know the location, opt for 'Find DBX.' I clicked 'Find DBX.' The following window appeared.

    User Instruction:

    Here select the volume in Look in section. The default file type will be DBX File (*.DBX). If you want the tool to even search for the sub folder, check mark the box, 'Search in Folder.' Then click 'Start.'
    After the search is over, all the DBX files in that volume are listed as shown in the following screenshot.

    I noticed that against each DBX file there is a check box. I unchecked two of them and clicked 'OK.' The software then started the conversion process. This reveals that Stellar DBX to PST supports conversion of multiple DBX files simultaneously. After the conversion process is over, the following message appeared.

    Here, you can click 'OK'. Thereafter, click on any of the DBX file listed in the left pane and you can see the preview in the right pane. The upper right pane will show the list of mails, while the lower right pane will show the entire mail including the details, such as 'To', 'From', 'Subject', 'Mail body, 'Attachments', etc. Here is the corresponding screenshot of the preview feature.

    I think this shows the usefulness of the software as you can preview the mails before you can save them as PST. Now, you can proceed for saving the files.
    As I proceeded for saving the converted files, the following software window appeared, where there were options to create New PST file or append data into existing PST file. I selected a location and saved the result as a new PST file.

    With this, the software finishes its task of conversion. Now, you can import the PST file to any MS Outlook profile and access your mails. I repeated the same test with the other test environment (Test environment - 2). The result was almost the same. Due to improved hardware, the functioning was a bit better. However, I do not think, the tool works differently. I will give the same credit for both the test environments.

    Ease of Use: Stellar DBX to PST is not a resource-consuming tool. It runs fast and hassle free. The conversion rate is also good. The software interface is simple, yet user-friendly and self-descriptive. I did not have to roam around in too many windows to find the final PST file. I just selected the DBX file, converted it, previewed the result and then saved the final output (PST file). I must say; the tool is simple.


  • Simple and user-friendly tool

  • Conversion rate is good and speedy

  • Wide array of compatibility with OS and MS Outlook versions

  • Light and Less resource consuming

  • Con:

  • Does not convert corrupt or damaged mails

  • Price of the product, which is $199 for Administrator License. This makes it a bit pricy comparatively; however, affordable.

  • Conclusion:

    Stellar DBX to PST is a 'must-have' tool for all users who have voluminous important mails lying in their Outlook Express profiles and they want badly them in their MS Outlook accounts. I think, many people, who are not aware of such a tool manually transfer them. For them this tool does the job just in minutes. It is a good tool to have for users in need of migration form Outlook Express to MS Outlook. I took two different test environments and found the tool working perfectly in both of them. It is not heavy, runs smoothly with other applications. It does not affect the integrity of the mails and other components. Overally, I would say it is value for money.
