    Getting address book back (6)

    I use Outlook Express for my personal email and Outlook as my business email. I had to reinstall Outlook. It asked me if I wanted it as my default mail server. I foolishly clicked yes. What it then did was take all of my contacts out of Outlook Express and replace them with my Outlook contacts, which I don't want.

    How do I get my Outlook Express contacts back? I hope they are not gone forever. HELP!!!

    Oh, no, it has gone from bad to worse. Since I didn't want the contacts in Outlook Express, I decided to delete them. This removed them from Outlook as well. I want these back in Outlook. My fear is that I have deleted them permanently. Why are Outlook and Outlook Express not working independently? Help again!!

    Re: Getting address book back (6)

    Solved it!!! Went to the address book of Outlook Express and found the option of not sharing the address book with Outlook. Once I closed everything down and opened them again, everything was back to normal. Whew! I thought I had lost everything. Fortunately, all of the deleted contacts in Outlook were in the deleted items folder and I hadn't closed Outlook, thereby getting rid of them.

    Life is good, isn't it!

    Way to go. <img src=/S/clapping.gif border=0 alt=clapping width=19 height=23> And all it cost you was a few gray hairs, momentary extremely high blood pressure, and a panic attack. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15> All in a days work. <img src=/S/yep.gif border=0 alt=yep width=15 height=15>

    BTW, thanks for posting the solution.
