    If you have expertise in technical troubleshooting, then you should first try the manual method i.e. free of cost.
    The manual method will complete the whole procedure in two phases:
    Phase 1: Import Outlook Express data to Windows live mail.
    Phase 2: Import data from Windows live mail file to MS Outlook
    If you are a non-technical user, then a manual method is a time consuming and complicated process for you. In this situation, user should use third party software.

    there are two options to convert your Outlook Express to Outlook PST.
    1) Freeware or manual way
    2)Commercialware or Third party tool
    Although Freeware or manual sound good, it involves lots of effort and technical understanding, and it doesn't convert DBX to PST format, it only helps to export the Outlook Express to Outlook PST.
    That's why, I would go for the Commercialware option it safe & swift, and doesn't involve any technical expertise. You can download DBX To PST Converter from the internet. It also serves some usful feature.
