    I took (using my memory stick) a copy of my PST file and my PAB file from the server at my work (each client PC at work has Outlook 2000 on it) and imported it into Outlook 2003 on my laptop at home. It was the first time that I used the Outlook 2003 on my laptop, because I don’t use it to send and receive any email, so an email account doesn’t exist on it. The PST and PAB files are in the default storage folder C:\Documents and Settings\XXXXXX\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook. When I click on the little book icon on the toolbar (like I do at work), the address book is empty in Outlook 2003. What am I not doing correctly, please anyone? The emails part of it works fine: I can read them, etc.

    Thanks in advance.

    You will need to import the PAB file into the PST file/Contacts. I don't believe 2003 uses the PAB files any longer, but they can still be imported.
