It is possible those file extensions may have been associated with Notepad. If that is the case, you can re-associate them with Outlook Express by going to the file 's properties | clicking the Change button next to Open With, and selecting Outlook Express from the list. Nevertheless, were this the case, you would still be able to open the file by right-clicking on it, selecting "Open with", and selecting Outlook Express from the list.
