    Hi!

    Thank you for having this service available.

    I had installed Microsoft office upgrade to 2007 and also updated to microsoft outlook and lost function of respond on the email client. I was into windows live and sending a message, the client asked to have my email changed to outlook express which i agreed to. So now my email client it express but lost all the emails that were on the Microsoft outlook with all the addresses.

    Anyway that I can retrieve my address book from Microsoft outlook through maintenance option

    I had tried to save the address book yesterday but the copy paste function was greyed out. The default change was kind of spontaneous. Any help available for this. I was using the MS outlook due to work online. Using windows XP professional

    Thank you and Happy New year to everybody!

    Use the "Import" feature of Outlook Express. if you choose to import "All" folders, it will include all messages and contacts data. or you can choose to import only contacts and not messages.

    Obviously, it requires that both Outlook & Outlook Express are currently installed on the same PC.
    Go here for a short tutorial: http://www.ehow.com/how_6374425_import-outlook-outlook-express.html

    However, it must be pointed out that, for backup purposes, it's much easier to back up data in Outlook than is the case with Outlook Express.

    There was NO need into go to Outlook Express, as Outlook 2007 is much better product.

    Can you explain what this "lost function of respond on the email client" is all about?

    And how does Windows Live fit into this issue?
