.oeb File Extension

Developer: QSX
File type: Data File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .oeb. Files with the file extension .oeb can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .oeb files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .oeb file?

The OEB file extension is known as Outlook Express Backup Wizard File which was developed by QSX. It is a file format for backup of an outlook express e-mail database. It creates a complete backup of all Outlook Express files that includes accounts, identities, e-mail messages, attachments, address books, message rules, list of blocked senders, identities, and signatures. They also provide security to the user security in case viruses, software failures or power outages cause database crash. This is because the wizard restores the database using the backup files and store them in a reliable media like CDR. They also help in moving the Outlook express data in between computers. They can also backup Internet explorer bookmarks and any files manually selected except folders. They can be accessed even if the computer is not connected to the internet. Backup files undergo automatic ZIP compression and password protected. Files in OEB format can be opened with QSX Outlook Express Backup Wizard in Microsoft Windows platforms.

Microsoft Outlook Express

Microsoft Outlook Express

Outlook Express is an email and news client that is integrated with Internet Explorer versions 4.0 through 6.0. It is also bundled with a number of versions of Microsoft Windows, from Windows 98 to Windows Server 2003, and is available for Windows 3.x, Windows NT 3.51, Windows 95 and Mac OS 9. In Windows Vista, Outlook Express was outdated by Windows Mail, then again by Windows Live Mail as separate software in Windows 7. Microsoft Entourage, sold as part of Microsoft Office for Macintosh, has changed the Macintosh version. Outlook Express is a diverse application from Microsoft Office Outlook. The two programs do not share a common codebase, but do share a common architectural philosophy. The similar names lead many people to incorrectly conclusion that Outlook Express is a stripped-down version of Microsoft Office Outlook. Outlook Express utilizes the Windows Address Book to store contact information and incorporates tightly with it. On Windows XP, it also joins together with Windows Messenger.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .oeb files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .oeb. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
