    I would like to get rid of AOL , but I would not like to type in all of my email addresses in another program. Does anyone know the file in the AOL folder that holds the address book?

    Hi, I don't think there is a way to export your address book; the names are kept in a file with your screen name in your Organize folder under AOL (up to 5.0, then they're kept online), but not in a format that lends itself to exporting.

    You could, however, send a single email to everyone on the list with a copy to yourself at your new email address and then add them in from that message when you open it in the other program. OR, if you don't want to send everyone an email, just create the mail and then copy the names out and paste them into notepad or something. You'll still have some work to do, but it will be mostly copy and paste instead of typing.
