Treat the bak file as if it was foreign dbx file and give it a new name and then import it into OE as an individual dbx file:

I've got a *.bak (was a *.dbs until OE Compacted it to the Recycle Bin)
Folder in my PC with XP and was wondering how to take that folder & import

will overwrite a folder with newer Email.
Thanks, Bill
