    Hi! :)
    I need your help for three things: :confused:

    1. I want to transfer all my contacts from Outlook Express to MS Outlook. Is it possible to appear on the left like Outlook Express?
    2. I also want to import to MS Outlook all my stored e-mails.
    3. Where can I find MS Outlook storing file for any incoming & outgoing e-mails?

    1 & 2) Outlook should have a "File -> Import & Export ..." menu choice that pops up wizard box. One of the choices in the box will be "Import Mail and Addresses". Not sure about displaying information the same way as in OE. I don't use OE that much.

    3) Recent versions of Outlook store all user information and e-mails in a single "Personal Folder" file with a .PST extension. I am using Outlook 2003 on a PC running Windows XP Home. I believe my default location for the PST file is

    C:\Documents and Settings\(User_Name)\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook

    Where (User_Name) is the actual user name of the person logged into Windows.

    Thank you very much for your answer. :)
    I decided to continue my work using Outlook Express because I need to write again all my contacts to Address Book in order to be available to MS Outlook. :(
    Unless if you know another way to import them ... :confused:

    Outlook should be able to import your OE address book entries into its contacts list without any problems. They may just not be displayed exactly the same way as in OE.

    Let me explain ... :eek:
    I followed your instructions and I imported everything correctly but when I opened the Address Book from Tools/Address Book within MS Outlook it was empty.
    When I opened the Address Book from Tools/Address Book within Outlook Express it was full with addresses. :confused:

    Sorry about that. I had thought that maybe you did not understand me and did not try to import anything.

    If you open the Outlook Address book do you get any kind of drop down menu choices for "Show names from the:" box in the menu bar?
