    Re: address book

    OE uses a .wab file to store the email addresses. Copy it to your Vista
    computer, then Import it into Windows Mail or Windows Live Mail.

    Re: address book

    Hello, can you please be more specific on the steps? I went to my Outlook on
    my old PC, selected File, then Import and Export, export to file, but the
    next set of options did not present a ".wab" file and I could not figure out
    how to save to the jump drive to then copy into the laptop with the windows
    mail. thanks for your time.

    Re: address book

    (for Outlook Express, not Outlook)
    On the XP computer, search for *.wab
    If you don't find it, open Outlook Express, open the Address book, File -
    Export - Address Book (.wab)

    Or, you could export the addresses to a CSV file, then import that into WM.

    If you really mean Outlook, then it's a whole 'nother story.
