I have been using Outlook express and to use some features in outlook I decided to switch to Outlook. How can I move the email messages that I have already downloaded to Outlook Express? I have also realized that the address books both programs are using are different. And when I right click on the emails Outlook doesnt have the option to add to the address book. Is ther a way to add this on the right click menu?

thanks.

I believe you can Export the messages from Outlook Express into Outlook. Just create your Outlook profile first and it should detect this.

The Contacts are exported to a text file and then imported into Outlook.

Thanks Bob, I have imported both the messages and the addressbook. Now I ended up with a different prob. I have over 4000 messages and they are duplicated in my folders. Any easy way to clean the duplicate messages?

Since it is a new Outlook configuration, you might delete what you have and start the importing over again.
