What is the best utility for recovering several corrupted .DBX (Outlook Express Email files)?

Do any of these utilities recover the individually corrupted corupted .DBX files into a single Outlook Personal folder (.PST file) since each one of the .DBX Outlook Express data files signifies a single Outlook Express Mail folder?

Some of these utilities will recover individual .DBX files into .EML files, and then I will be stuck recreating the folder structure and reimporting the .EML (individual email) data files into each individual Outlook personal folder (.PST file) (which I have to manually recreate).

I'm looking for the easiest and most automated way of performing this .DBX file recovery and importation into a single Outlook .PST file.

As far as I know, Microsoft doesn't provide such a tool to achieve the goal. You have to find a third-party tool to do it.

This forum is for general questions and feedback related to Outlook. Since .DBX files are Outlook Express Email files, I'd recommend you post your question in the following forum for further assistance:
