Q: Microsoft Outlook Contacts - HELP convert to new MAC

I emailed myself some microsoft outlook contacts from my old PC to my new MAC - and when I download the files they are each saved as a "Unix Executable File".
I tried opening with every program available on my MAC and I only keep getting this message:

"This attachment is a MAPI 1.0 embedded message and is not supported by this mail system."

Any suggestions? My old PC is long gone and I don't know how I wll be able to recover all my old contacts!!!

I'm trying to figure out how to get 13,000 contacts to export to separate word documents (one doc per contact).
Is this possible?

The goal here is to get each contact from outlook, as an note entry in Evernote or Anote, and I figured the best way woiuld be to go through word then upload to the note program.

Thanks for any suggestions.

Hi, I have been charged with the task of figuring out how to make microsoft outlook contacts automatically update between a series of computers on my network. I've read various articles, and none seem to be what my employers are looking for. Some of the methods include buying/downloading a program to do it, using outlook to forward the contacts to everyone, etc. etc. That's not what they are looking for, though. One of the people here says she's done it before, but it took months, and she can't remember how. Something to do with changing where outlook accesses to find contacts.

Can anyone help me out? It would be greatly appreciated.


I've found out where contacts and everything is stored, I believe... "C:\Documents and Settings\administrator\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook\"

I've found another method, would this work?


Now, how do I change where outlook accesses these from? In theory, if I put that outlook.pst file on the network, and set all the computers/outlooks to access it there, I would have succeeded, no?

When I receive an e-mail from someone, and I choose to reply to it, it automatically appears in the format of "User <[email protected]>" in the "To:" field of the reply window.

Is there a way that I can automatically have it format it just to say "User" in the "To:" field, without having to add that user to my contacts? All I want is the recipients name in that field, as I'd prefer it to not display their e-mail address there as well.

Perhaps I am missing something here, but without their email address in the To: filed it cannot send the email. This field is the primary source of the recipient address.

For instance, I have many contacts that start with i, but when I type in i, only some of these contacts come up as possiblilities? Any and all suggestions as to what my be going on are very welcome. Thanks!

A:Microsoft outlook 2003, autocomplete only works with some contacts??

Have you rebuilt your autocomplete list?? This list is populated when you send emails. As a quick alternative, unplug your network cable, send a test message to all your contacts, then delete that email from outbox. This will populate all your contacts in autocomplete list. Hope this helps

Also I was wrestling to find out why autocomplete didn't work. The reason was, I was using default profile. You have to create a profile after upgrading from Outlook2000 to 2003. Control panel->Mail->Create Profile->New. Then only Outlook2003 setup .NK2 file for that profile.

I had a crash and the operating system had to be restored non-destructively. The backup operation saved the Microsoft Outlook .pst file. I have now recovered all the e-mails but the Contacts folder is "empty" when looking for an address. The Contacts folder (as well as the Calendar folder) also does not appear in the list of folders in the Navigation Pane. If I attempt to export a comma separated file (DOS) from the Personal Folders, the "Contacts" folder appears in the window when browsing for the folder to export. If I export that file, all the contacts are there complete with all the addresses when viewed as an Excel file. Any suggestions on how to integrate the contacts into the Personal folder without having to recreate a contact file manually from the Excel file? Cheers, Wondering Willy

Hi johnbigbootie89,

Welcome to Vista Forums!

Let me apologize that it took so long for someone to reply to your request - but it is now active and I think we'll be able to resolve it. In fact, I think I have just what you need.

Check out the following article: Importing contacts from Windows Contacts folder | MSOutlook.info. Make sure you use the Vista procedure. It seems the article was designed specifically for this purpose so I have high hopes it will accomplish your objective. You do not drag the contents (which is essentially copy/paste) - you use import/export instead.

I hope this helps.

Good luck!

Hello, I have multiple issues regarding address books and contacts. I am currently trying to organize multiple address books on my Win 2000 desktop(outlook express) my laptop XP (outlook 2007) and my IPhone 3G. They are a mess because of old cell phone backups combined with address book entries. I now have multiple entries for numerous contacts etc.
After organizing all these contacts/address books I would like to import to my new Win 7 desktop (outlook 2010 beta) and retire my Win 2000 desktop. These are all stand alone computers that are not networked other than through a router to share broadband access.
I tried searching for software to help combine and organize all three of these but had no luck.
I then tried manually updating all my contacts on my laptop and Iphone but I ran into a glich of sorts. After making the changes on my Iphone and doing a ITunes sync, some of the contacts disappeared. Right now I am not sure how many, but I noticed a few of the ones I use alot are gone on both my laptop and Iphone.
I do not subscribe to or use the "mobile me" feature.
I have spent quite a bit of time searching the net without finding a solution.
Any help you can provide would be much appreciated!

Hello all:

First time poster.

In the folder/tree view on the left in Outlook 2007 (Windows XP Pro) the Contacts folder is not showing up.

In Outlook 2003, it was right there underneath Calendar, which, by the way, is also missing from the Folder/Tree view.

I can access my Contacts via the big tab at the bottom but I want the tree/folder view as it broke up the hierarachy very nicely.

Any ideas?

I have over 13 years of Outlook Express folders and addresses that I desperately need to convert to Outlook 2007. I should have imported them into Outlook before I made the "Easy File Transfer" to the new Win 7 machine, but didn't know I needed to do that. Several years ago I had imported the files into Outlook, although that data did transfer it is now way out-of-date and full of duplicates.

The up-to-date data is still in my old machine and also in an external hard drive backup. I have isolated the Outlook Express personal folders into .dbx format and the addresses into .wab format.

Is there a way this can be reformatted into Outlook? Or is there some other way? I would probably also need to delete what is already in Outlook first, or I would have many more duplicates.

I welcome any suggestions.

I recently re-installed my entire computer, incl. MS Office 2002.
When restoring the .pst files, something went wrong. Maybe I needed to re-install more than just .pst files, maybe it screwed up because I renamed the back-up files?

Either way, the problem is that the Contact folder is not displayed in the Outlook Address Book, and I cannot manage to make it so.
I tried the following:
- Right-clicking the Contacts folder, Properties, Outlook Address Book tab. The checkbox "Show this folder as an e-mail Address Book" is greyed out, so I cannot check it.
- Tools, E-mail accounts, View or change existing directories or address books. Outlook Address Book - MAPI is listed (as only one). When pressing Change..., I get an error message: "This E-mail account cannot be configured. Please run Outlook and choose this profile before attempting to make changes to it." There is only one profile (I had 2 before re-installation, but no longer needed the second).
If I try to Add... an Additional Outlook Address Book, or a Personal Address Book, I get the error message "The account you have added is not fully configured. It might not work properly until re-configured correctly."

Nice, but how to re-configure it correctly??? I prefer not having to re-install the program...

I tried to Remove the listed Outlook Address Book, but then could still not Add... one (same error message), so the originally listed one re-appeared.

I have a problem when I import my contacts from my desktop Outlook into my laptop Outlook. The way I do this is to export them from my desktop machine onto a flash drive, then I move that to my laptop and import them. The problem is that once completed, my laptop Outlook sorts the list by the first name, rather than by the last name as my desktop does.

My list is about 5K names, and while I do have a few occurrences where there are a couple of people with the same last name, there are FAR more with similar first names. You wouldn't believe how many Dave's I have!

I have gone into the "Tools, Preferences, Contact Options" on the laptop, and it IS set for "sort by last name."

Both computers are tunning XP Pro, and Outlook 2003.

A:Importing Outlook Contacts Into Laptop Outlook

I hope this will help... I've just sorted my contacts by last name by doing the following:Go > Contacts, then I selected phone list from Current view. Then right-click on the empty place of the contacts table and select Customize Current View > Fields and Last name field. Now when I click on the Filed column in the contacts table Outlook sorts my contacts by last name.Also, you can always move your contacts and other outlook data using this utility.
