    Outlook 2000 can import .pst files witch is composed of personal folders.
    Right clicking on each personal folder> advanced tab we can see the path to each .pst file.

    Question:
    Who, witch outlook parameter, or witch registry key informs outlook witch .pst files to loads at it's startup?

    If you are thinking of changing the location of the default .pst file that outlook uses, you don't need to modify the registry. Just close outlook and move the file to where you want it, with the name you want. When you open outlook, it will ask you where the file is now.

    Obrigado!
    E como é que eu posso passar para o livro de endereços do Outlook os endereços do livro de endereços do outlook express ficheiro do tipo .wab. Sei que posso passar os endereços por arrasto - drag and drop - mas dessa forma perco a organização por grupos. Como é que se pode fazer o outlook importar ou de alguma forma integrar os do outlook express com toda a sua organização?

    Try adding a second Personal Folder using that PST file. Then copy what you want from the first one. Then remove it.

    Excuse me please :eek: . I forgot myself to translate my question. I leave below the translation. Now I do not understand which .pst file therefore I have a file .wab and if I try to open it reply of outlook is clear: Microsoft Outlook
    File C: Addresses.WAB is not a file of folders
    staffs.
    OK
    Now the old message:
    "Debtor!
    How can I pass to the book of addresses of the Outlook the
    addresses of the book of addresses of outlook express file
    of the type .wab. I know that I can pass the addresses by dragging and dropping them into outlook addresses - but by this way I lose the groups organization . How can I make outlook to import or by any way
    integrate outlook express group addresses information with all its organization?

    You don't open it, you IMPORT it, and follow the prompts. It is under Internet Mail and Adresses.

    Thanks.
    It works but it crashes withou terminate the process with this error message:
    "Erro no programa

    OUTLOOK.exe gerou erros e irá ser fechado pelo Windows.
    Necessita de reiniciar o programa.


    Está a ser criado um registo de erros."


    But the groups was imported .. the contact imports was not terminated about the errror. May be any corruption!

    Plase ansewer me one more question if you know:
    I have made the import on MsOutlook menu sequence and options listed:
    "Importar e exportar...>Importar correio e endereços de Internet > Microsoft Internet Mail 3.x > Pasta 'Contactos' do Outlook > Permitir a criação de duplicados"

    and the informations can be viewed in outlook contacts tab or in Tools>address book outlook command.

    This comand opens one new window named Adress Book. The menu file of this Window has commands Import and Export separated.

    My question is: Why are these commands alawais desabled?????????? What are them for??? When are them used? and what to do??

    I can add that the importation fails when outlook starts to create the
    distribution lists...

    They are greyed out on mine as well. I don't know why, and I cannot find a use for them.

    In what way does it fail?
