    Hi terrace

    If you Exported your Outlook Contacts into a .csv file, you should then be able to Import the .csv file into the Outlook Express Address book.
    Saving them in a .pst file will not allow that.

    Try it again, this time select: Text File (Comma Separated Values) as the format you want your Outlook Contacts saved as.

    Sorry, i`m still not getting this. I saved it as "csv" as you both said, but how do i get the contacts into Outlook Express? Edit--When i open Outlook Express and go>file>import>address book>select address book file to import from, the csv file is not there to select, but is in My Documents when i open it.

    Open the Address Book in Outlook Express:
    File > Import > Other Address Book
    Select: Text File (Comma Separated Values)
    Click: Import > Browse
    Browse to the location of the .csv file you just created and select it.
    The Import should begin.


    Sorry for stepping on your toes etaf :eek:

    Thanks! :)



    terrace after selecting the .csv file, you'll most likely need to click:
    Next > Finish
    for the Import to begin.

    Then you can check in the Address Book to see if you are happy with the end result.
