    Choose Addressbook from the menu, then click Export to Tab-delimited file.

    Name the file NAME.TXT to save the file as a text file (where NAME is the name of your address book) and Click Save.

    Close address book and close Pegasus.

    Open Excel.

    Go to File menu, then Open, change the Files of Type: to All files and locate the file that you save in step 4. Click Open.

    Text Import Wizard will open. Step 1 of 3, click Next. Step 2 of 3, click Next. step 3 of 3, click Finish.

    Edit cells

    Go to File menu, then Exit, Do you want to save changes? click Yes.

    When the Save As windows appears, click Save. Click Yes twice to exit.

    To Import into Outlook

    Open Outlook

    Go to the File menu, and choose New, then Folder.

    Name the folder and then choose Contact Items in the Folder Contains drop-down box and click OK. NOTE: You may be prompted to add a shortcut to this folder to your Outlook Bar. Click Yes to add an icon for this contact folder to your Outlook Shortcuts.

    Go to the File menu and choose Import and Export

    The Import and Export Wizard will open. Choose Import from another program or file, then click Next.

    Choose Tab Separated Values (Windows) as the file type, then click Next. NOTE: you may be prompted to install this feature.

    Click OK to continue.

    Click Browse to find the file you just exported from Pegasus.

    Double-click the file to select it and click Next.

    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
