In outlook express, click view, layout and check the 'contacts' box.

Thanks for the thanks Pat.
Alder,
Another way of doing it, bypassing the dbx folders. Create a folder on your desktop and give it any name.
Then open up outlook express. Once opened, minimise it a bit so you have the outlook express window open big enough to see the message headers, but small enough to see the folder on your desktop. You can then drag the messages, by the header/subject line into the folder. You can select multiple messages by selecting the first e-mail, then whilst holding down the shift button, selecting the last e-mail in the list. All in between will be selected. Then drag them to the folder on mass.
Transfer this folder which has now got copies of your messages in it to your desktop computer. Use the same process to drag the messages from the folder into outlook express.
You'll just have to create the outlook express folders you created on the laptop, manually on your desktop.
