 Problem transferring Outlook Express 5.01 files to new machine running OE 6.0

I'm trying to transfer my e-mails from my old pc to my
new one.  I copied the mailbox.pst from my old machine to
the new one.
My old pc ran Win 95 using Outlook Express 5.01.  My new
pc is running XP using Outlook Express 6.  There isn't an
option to import Outlook Express 5 on the Import Messages
Tool, just OE 4 and OE 6.  How do I transfer the OE 5.01
folders and e-mail files to the new pc running OE 6?  

Please advise.

Thank you!

Rick

There is something wrong here. You say that your old PC
ran Outlook Express 5.0, and that you copied your .PST
file from the old PC to the new PC. Outlook Express does
not use .PST files, it uses a cluster of .DBX files. It seems
you copied some unused Outlook file across.

Please clarify.
