    OE-transfer address book (Win XP v. 6)

    A friend has several email accounts on OE and wants to tranfer (copy) the address book from one e-mail account to another. I realize this has been discussed but since I can't search for that info, can someone give me instructions? Thanks in advance. Libbie

    The KB addressing the address book is

    270670: OLEXP: How to Back Up and Recover Outlook Express Data

    From: <A target="_blank" HREF="http://www.iopus.com/guides/oe-backup.htm">
    How to backup Outlook Express (OE) Email and transfer settings to another PC</A> under

    Address Book:

    Getting the data out of your address book for safekeeping is relatively easy. From the menu select File | Export | Address Book and select the comma separated text file as your output format. Then select the fields you want to export. To make sure you know where the backup is going, give a full path name. To restore the address book or to get your addresses onto a new system, the process is not quite symmetrical. Select File | Import | Other address book and select the text file option again. You'll be given a list of fields to import. Since you're importing a file that was created by Outlook Express, you usually don't need to make any changes here. After that, click your way on through the wizard and you'll get your address book back.

    Take a look at Move the WAB from Tomsterdam. Also: How do I move my address book? from Tomsterdam.
