Import Outlook 2002 address book to Outlook Express

Q: Import Outlook 2002 address book to Outlook Express

I have tried to import my .WAB file from Microsoft Office Outlook 2002 to Outlook Express. I used File, Import from within Outlook Express. I select the .wab file to import, and I get a message in about 1/2 a second saying it has been done but no addresses are imported.
Do you have to have both programs open? Is there another way to import addresses into OE?

I've just HAD to change from Windows XP (thank you so much, Microsoft; f**k you...) to a refurbished machine running Windows 7. The old machine had Outlook Express; the new one has Outlook 2007.

I've transferred all the e-mails I need to keep (by forwarding them one by one; a pain, but it worked), but now I need to import my address book. I copied it to a memory stick as a .wab file, and it's now on my desktop. If I have the inbox displayed, and click on 'search inbox', then click in the drop-down box on 'search desktop', there the data are. Not in alphabetical order, as they were when downloaded, but there.

How do I get the info into my address book? Please help.

I've been using Thunderbird as my default email client for a few years now,.. I'd like to use Outlook Express occasionally but I don't have my regular contacts in the OE address book. How do I import the address book from OE to Thunderbird.

A:How to import address book from Thunderbird to Outlook Express

Hi terrawarra,

I had to do this at work a while back. It's a bit of a game but check out this article.

Basically you export the Thunderbird data as a CSV file, import it to OE and map the data to the headers (ie tell OE what the entries in the address book mean).

Though I didn't need it in the end, I started by making a backup of my data first using MozBackup.

How do I import my old Outlook express address book with groups into a new installation of Outlook Express?

I got a new computer and would like to import my address book from the old computer. I saved the old address book but when I try to import it into the new computer it loses all of the folders and groups and puts everything into the main contacts list.

Note that it is OE to OE not OE to Outlook.

If I knew where the main address book is stored I could probably just rename the old address book the same as the main book and overwrite it.

Can anybody help me?

A:How do I import my outlook express address book with groups

On your old computer open OE and click on File, Export, Address Book. Choose Text file (comma seperated values) and press Export. Enter the place you want to save the address list, for example a floppy in your floppy drive, which would be :

a:\address.csv

Press next and put a checkmark in each box and then press finsih.

It will create the floopy on your floppy. Put that floppy in the new machine, and this time after opening OE, click on File, then Import, then Other Address Book, and select text file(comma seperated values) and press import. Specify the file a:\address.csv and press next.

Put a check in each box and press finish. You should now have all your addresses imported.

A:"Outlook Express" Export/Import Address Book

Hi 2praisehim

No, it will not Export the Groups, you will need to recreate them.
The .csv file is the best backup, this format makes it available to Import to other programs.

As an alternative, you can make a copy of the .wab file and copy it over to the new computer.
To find the location of the original Address Book,
Open the Address Book in Outlook Express:
Tools > About Address Book
The directory will appear along with the name of the .wab file, which usually is the User Account name.wab

Navigate to that directory and copy the .wab file.
Copy the .wab file to the Desktop on the laptop,
find the location of the Address Book for Outlook Express,
Check this directory on the Laptop,
C:\Documents and Settings\User Account\Application Data\Microsoft\Address Book\User Account.wab
rename the .wab file to User Account.wab.old
Copy the backup .wab file to that directory and rename it to the same name as the current .wab file: User Account.wab

In Outlook Express, click the Address Book icon to open, the replaced Address Book should appear.

Let us know if that works for you or not.

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.

What can I do?

I'm trying to read the e-mails from my old Windows 98 computer on my current Windows XP computer but I haven't been able to figure out how to successfully do this. The e-mail client on the Windows 98 machine was Outlook Express 6 and the one on my current XP computer is Outlook 2002.

I followed the instructions listed on the Microsoft support site (Article ID: 270670) for backing up the data from Outlook Express which left me with a folder of .dbx files (Inbox.dbx, Drafts.dbx etc) which I then burned onto a CD and transferred over to my XP computer. My problem is that now that I've done that I'm not sure how to get Outlook 2002 to import that folder of .dbx files or recognize it. I googled it but didn't find any helpful results other than links to expensive conversion programs. So could anyone here offer any help on the matter? Thanks in advance.

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.

Okay, I posted earlier about Word 2002, now I am about Outlook 2002. It's on the same machine which leads me to believe the woman on it is doing something and not telling me, or that her machine is just posessed.

When she opens her address book, which is part of an Exchange environment, she does not see the Names field first. She sees the Business number, then the Email Type, then the Company, then the Name of the person or distribution list.

I've noticed there is no way of moving these fields around. You can resize them, but the three (3) that are in front of the Name field will be reduced to nothing if I do this.

Any suggestions? I'm really about ready to uninstall/reinstall Office.

I just ran into this for the first time ever.

I tried to add a new Contact name and data, as I've done for years. When I went to retrieve the name it didn't show. Just to make sure I had saved it I re-entered everything, clicked "Save and Close", with my wife watching me do it as proof that I wasn't going batty, and the name didn't show in the listing. So I did it again two more times. Didn't work. So I then entered my name with a "TEST" added to it. That didn't show up in a search of the Address book either.

Now, to get even screwier, I then entered the name in the little search window at the upper right hand corner instead of opening the Address Book, and lo and behold I find all four entries of the original name I tried to add to start with, but they don't show as entries when I open the full Address Book.

I wish to know how to sort the names which appear in the address book generated from the Contacts file of Outlook 2002. Currently (I presume by default) the names appear first name, last name and I wish to sort them last name first. [At the risk of insulting the reader's intelligence, (a) I elaborate below, and (b) I am not asking how to sort the Contacts file, which I already have sorted last name first.]

In Outlook 98 (and in Outlook 2000 - according to a friend who uses it) when one is preparing to send an e-mail, one clicks on the address book icon and a SELECT NAMES window pops up. In that window is a smaller window with a list of the names (generated from the Contacts file) in the address book that you may click on to choose them for the "To", "Cc" or "Bcc" line of the e-mail. Just above the list of names is the title "Name." It is this list of names that I wish to be able to sort. In Outlook 98 and Outlook 2000, there is a small triangle shaped button next to the "Name" title, and if you click on it you can change the sorting of the names from first name, last name (as it appears now) to last name, first name. Clicking on this button also allows you to change the order of the names from ascending to descending, and vice versa. In Outlook 2002, there is no such button in the Name title line (nor any other method of sorting I can discover). I can't believe this feature is unavailable in Outlook 2002 if only bec... Read more

Well just last night someone phoned me and asked for my brothers new phone number and then realized I hadn't set up an address book in W7. Upon doing a search of the forums I don't see much positive feelings.... about new address books and email clients.

I imported my old address book from my old hdd and upon inspection it only imports the name, email address and phone number. No other information. No street address, etc.

So now looking further into this, I see it looks like a problem, I used Outlook Express for years and thought I was going to just use webmail instead. It has been nothing but a headache so far making the switch. The only part about changing to W7 that has been difficult has been the change of email systems. I have yahoo mail but I didn't do a sync before I upgraded so my contacts there are outdated.

I used to have my address book syncing with my Blackberry under Windows XP so maybe I will try that route, since my phone addresses are up-to-date. Perhaps I can get all my addresses and numbers that way.

Wish me luck!

I cannot find a way of making it list Mobile Phone, even though this info is stored on it; if I click on any entry & click Properties, it correctly lists Mobile under the Summary tab, also Mobile number can be edited under Home tab.

In Outlook Express Help, search for address book mobile lists ... 0 topics found.

Any ideas? Thanks

If it won't reinstall, I suggest you go to http://www.mozilla.com and download Thunderbird, install it and import whatever you can rescue from OE. Thunderbird is a far superior e-mail handler anyway and OE has now been superceded by Microsoft with Windows Live Mail.

I recently transfered a HDD from an ailing computer to a new one. On the old one I was unable to get XP backup to work so I used Nero Backitup. I have the old files in a restore folder on the new computer but I can't figure out what the names of the files are that would contain my address book and my folders, such as Inbox, Deleted mail, and Drafts. Or how to restore them. I've has quite a bit of luck restoring other areas of the HDD but not here. A big help would be to know what the names of the files are.

I am running Win XP SP2. Problem is in Outlook Express Address book; my group address lists are being limited in number of addresses. One is stuck at 18 total names, so I started a second similar group and it is limited to 9. If I try to add a name to either of these, it goes on but another name is bumped off. Nothing is on MS KB or anywhere else that I can find on this. Everyone I talk to says there is no limit on address book size. Help!

the option to automatically store email addresses i have sent to in the address book is not working properly. It does not store all address and it tells me i have the address already in the address book but when i go to it it is not there. This prevents me clicking on an address to add it to the address book and means i have to manually enter each one

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.

I was trying out the export address book function and exported it. (ME just says export, no option to where). Well I found it in outlook express program files. I checked where it's supposed to live and it was there too so thought my export was just a copy and deleted it from OE program files.
Now my address book isn't a .wab file it's an unkown application, still works but will give me probs when backing up. On doing a search I haven't got a .wab address book any more. How do I get my address book to be a .wab (windows address book) file again?
Thanks

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.

the Adress Book failed to load, Outlook Express is incorrectly configured , please re-install.

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.
I changed some of the files that had wab to old and in the registry I set the data to (0) at the dword area. I even changed the idenities in window explorer too. But I can't get the address book to load. I also can't import my messages that I saved , there is a blank in the wizard when transfering (no programs like outlook express). Like I said the accounts imported fine. I have a xp pro thinkpad with about 1.5mhz , 1GB ram, with office but I never used outlook, just outlook express. Thank you for the help.
