    Importing Address Book from Outlook Express (XP)

    How do you do this? My XP and Vista computers are networked but the Vista
    Windows Mail import feature does not one to browse the network.

    If I remember correctly, you actually export the XP address book to a file
    and then you import it into Vista by way of that file. (If you've ever
    exported/imported browser bookmarks, it's a similar process.) It's not like
    you can point Vista to the XP drive and just yank the addresses out of XP.
    At least I don't think so.
    Anyway, I just jumped in to give you an answer until someone else responds.
    I KNOW there are more knowledgeable people who will give you better
    instructions than this.

    I exported the file from Windows Address Book on XP, then moved the file
    local to the Vista system and imported.
