On my parents Dell Inspiron 7500, I attempted to transfer the large group of email recipients (of which they were one) to their address book but had a time trying to get that 'mass of names' to tranfer. So decided to first set up a folder to move the email to and attempt from there. Well, geez, everything is messed up. The email has disappeared from the email list, and the folder now has a list of gibberish --lotsa little squares. I played around with options, still not knowing what I was doing, and at one time the names and addresses appeared but still surrounded by strange code. At this point, I would be happy if I could 1. return the info to the email state and return the email so my parents could at least access the addresses singularly from it, or 2. get rid of the gibberish and have the document in the folder speak real English to me.
Quicksand. Is there an easy way out of the mess I've made? Any direction much appreciated. I was only trying to establish a group-contact list for my parents for their genealogical society. Thanks. Pat

Do a Find>Files for *.wab

How many do you find? Don't know if you already know this but those are your Windows Address Book(s). One should be your original with their email addresses in it unless you replaced it.
