    A single OE mail message which has been saved as .eml is a mbox type
    text file. A single OE news message which as been saved as .nws is also
    a mbox type text file.

    An OE store folder/file .dbx is a proprietary compression scheme of a
    proprietary database file of a clump of OE news or mail messages.
    Are you trying to work with a proprietary (squared) database clump or a
    single simple text file? Import from
    Outlook Express -- Advanced alternatives -- Use either DbxConv or
    dbx2mbox to convert the .dbx files used by Outlook Express to mbox
    files. Then import the mbox files using the mboximport extension. --
    Export the messages as .EML files and then use the mboximport extension
    to import them.

    Yes I do.
    You are welcome!

    Spoiler: Click on Help on the menu bar, select Thunderbird Help, type
    "transfer from outlook express" in the search box.
