Thanks Eddie for a very careful explanation of what I should do.

But won't the instructions you've given only duplicate my contacts?

I really wanted to transfer the contents of mail folders which hold previous correspondence like family, orders, general etc...

Can you do the same sort of tab-limited export with these??

Thanks

Steven
