The 'Folders.dbx' file is the master index of the entire store, which stores the tree structure of the mail folders and additional information. The 'Offline.dbx' file stores IMAP and Hotmail actions, if you have an IMAP or Hotmail account. The 'Pop3uidl.dbx' file keeps track of messages left on a POP3 mail server.
All remaining .dbx files correspond to Outlook Express folders with the same name.

You can also find the full path of the dbx file corresponding to a OE folder by right-clicking that folder in OE and then clicking "Properties".
