       undbx - a tool to extract e-mails from Outlook Express .dbx files.




       undbx  is  a  tool  to extract, recover and undelete e-mails messages from Outlook Express
       .dbx files.

       Email are extracted in individual .eml files.

       When a target directory is specified, undbx will extract e-mails from dbx files  found  in
       this directory.  Instead of providing a target directory, the usr can provide a target dbx

       When no output directory is specified, undbx will extract emails in a subdirectory of  the
       current directory.

       In  normal  mode  (not recovery), a message is extracted only if there is no corresponding
       .eml file in the destination directory.

       On the other hand, if a .eml file exists in the destination directory and no corresponding
       mail  is found in the .dbx file, the mail is considered deleted and undbx will delete this
       .eml file.  This way, undbx can be used as an synchronization backup tool for .dbx files.

       The file names of .eml files are composed by the From, To and Subject: header fields.  The
       modification time of each file is set to match the date specified in the Date field of the
       mail header.


       --help Provides a short help message.

              undbx attempt to recover e-mail messages from a corrupted .dbx file.

       In this mode fragments of messages are collected into .eml files. This  may  take  a  long
       time and some messages maybe corrupted.

       Also, all messages are extracted, not only the new ones.
