    HI, Chuck ~

    Apparently as a result of the proprietary software, this is not easily accomplished. I did, however, find a page that provided a workaround with this link:

    <center>Transfer E-mail address book from AOL or Juno into another program</center>

    Thanks Bruce,

    The method you pointed to is still a wee bit awkward, but it is a lot better than typing it all in by hand.

    HI, Chuck ~

    I failed to mention the method I have used for Juno that I think you could do w/ AOL that will really expedite the process and cut out all the tedious Ctrl+C, Ctrl+V and switching back and forth:<UL><LI>In AOL or what have you, open up a new composition window and then your address book<LI>Click on each address so they all jump in the 'Send to:' window<LI>Now select & copy the entire batch of addresses<LI>Open OE and start a new message<LI>Paste the entire batch of addresses into the 'To:' field<LI>Put 'Test' into the subject line and body <small>(everyone will get it, understand & delete it - they won't mind, really)</small><LI>Send it<LI>Now open up your 'Sent Items' folder in OE<LI>Simply right-click each address and select 'Add to address book'[/list]Trust me, Chuck, this will be MUCH faster & easier than the method in the link above! <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    Hi Bruce,

    That's sounds very workable. I'll give it a shot.
