    Importing my address book from OE to WM

    My addressbook for some odd reason was not stored in my message store and
    therefore could not import it to WM along with my message folders. I coped
    it as AddressBook but find the extensions for each address strange lookiing.
    It is green and does not resemble the usual extension with each address.

    Would appreciate your help.

    Thanks.

    It's never been stored in the message stores.

    It's stored in a WAB file

    Moving from OE on XP to WM on VISTA

    Dear Microsoft Windows Mail Team:

    I was using a Dell laptop running on Windows XP. Now, I just bought a new
    laptop running on Windows Vista and need to transfer all my contact
    information (email address, setting, etc.) from Outlook Express to my
    Windows Mail. Please advise what I need to do. Thank you.

    Waiting to hear from you.

    Regards,
    Chris
