I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A friend is trying to move from Compuserve email to Outlook Express and needs to export all contact info.

I don't know which version of Compuserve or Windows she's using but Iif it's absolutely necessary in order to help her, I can find out.

Does anyone know any of the following:

a). The name of the file that Compuserve uses for contact info.

b) Is there a utility that can convert the Compuserve contact info into a
.csv file as in that format it can be imported into Outlook Express.

Any ideas will be greatly appreciated.

raz by the way welcome to TSG. I checked with MS Knowledge Base for importing AOL. NO go.

Why can't you "FORWARD" the emails to outlook express.

The address book you might be able to and I am not sure but with Yahoo you can export it and maybe AOL you can do the same. not sure but maybe someone else will know.

Just a few Ideas to think about. Also try AOL Email help and see if they have any suggestions.

A:Solved: Importing saved Address Book in Outlook Express 5

outlook express versions have to match.

if your .wab file was created with OE ver 5.whatever, then it will only import to the same OE ver 5.whatever. its a drag, I know. If your running a newer version of OE, I don't recommend reverting to an older version to get your wab file. if the file is important, you could try downloading eudora light, use that programs import to get your addresses, then go back to outlook express and import other address book from eudora light.

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 Several years ago I had imported the files into Outlook, although that data did transfer it is now way out-of-date and full of duplicates.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'm ready to pull my hair out over this, I just started working as the tech guy at this law firm and out of all the incredibly difficult things I fell really accomplished for solving... this thwarts me.

I have a list of like 1200 names and something along the lines of 20 different columns of information for each name (i.e. last name, first name, client ID, home phone, etc.) which I am switching from this archaic program they were using into outlook. To do so I copied the dBase file to Excel XP and asked the paper clip how to import it to Outlook (in case you couldn't tell before how desperate I am, now you know) and he said:

Name each column of information you want to send
Go to Outlook and hit File>import
Chose program, then file
Select location in address book (i.e. Contacts)
Drag each named column into whichever section in the contacts list I want.
Here it also says that if I want to add a section I can click a button for it, but I don't have that button either (this is XP pro)

And then it should all be okay, so to try it out I loaded a names column into "Name" and the corresponding e-mail addresses into "e-mail", and all I got was the field "display name" showing the e-mail addresses as well as the "e-mail address" section displaying the e-mail addresses.

A:Solved: Importing address book to Outlook

Hi woodies

A couple methods can be used:

Export the Outlook Express Address Book as a Text File (Comma Separted Values), then Import the .csv file into your Outlook Contacts or Address Book.
The options for my Outlook 97 are for Contacts, yours may be different.

In Outlook Express:
File > Export > Address Book > Text File (Comma Separated Values) > Name the file > Browse to the Desktop > Select the fields > Finish

In Outlook:
File > Import and Export > Import from Schedule + or another program or file > Next > Comma Separated Values > Next > Browse to file > Next > Select Destination Folder > Finish
_______________________________________________________________

Or in Outlook:
File > Import and Export > Import from Schedule + or another program or file > Next > Personal Address Book > Select Destination Folder > Finish
_______________________________________________________________

Using the first method and creating a .csv file makes the file available for backup purposes and available for other messaging programs.

Let us know if this works for you or not.

Sarah, try reinstalling Outlook Express. To do that, go to Add/Remove programs and remove it, then go back and add it back in. If this does not work, you could try deleting your address book. However, first export the address names to either a "WAB" address book or a text file, then import them back after you create your new address book. In fact, I would export the entries out to both in case you have a problem. I would definitely want to have a text file copy of my address book as that would be easy to recreate in any program.

Outlook express 6 was working fine but I went to send an email out with several addresses and it would kick it back. I then got a single email and couldn't open it.
I saved my messages and accounts in the stored folder and I saved my address book in csv. as told to by micro soft support. I uninstalled the outlook in both the add/remove ( windows components area) and I think when doing a change in registry they suggested too. I think I may have deleted something.
I tried a restore of the computer but it didn't work. I do have a earlier registry saved on my desktop but don't know how to restore that.
All this happened the night of the big updates from microsoft too. I even took off my email scan.
I have got outlook express working again but it gives me the above message each time I reload it.

RELEVANCY SCORE 105.2

I am running Windows ME and recently upgraded to IE6. I believe that coincidental with this upgrade, I have no longer been able to access my address book in Outlook Express 6. I have reinstalled several times with no success. When I try and open the address book, I get the message that the Address Book was installed improperly and I should reinstall. Having done that several times I am now stumped. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Can anyone tell me how to get the mobile number in the view when looking at the address book? Only business, email home is coming up even though when you hold the cursor over the name it does bring up mob numb in a box.

When my old computer with Windows 98 finally died, I had almost everything backed up to a cd, everything except my e-mail address book. A friend of a friend did some magic and put the folders from the e-mail program on another cd. He said to look for the wab files for my addresses. Now I have a new computer, Windows XP. When I attempted to follow his instructions, all I can find is dbx files and it is unreadable. And of course the guy is long gone. Can anyone help me with this PLEASE. I am totally lost.
