    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.

    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.
