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.

import the csv file
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ie/ie6/using/howto/oe/importing.mspx

on the tutorial
rather than PST
you need to change to a comma separated values (windows)
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:

from the website i linked to
Import Address Books
You can import address book contacts from other Microsoft Windows® Address Book files (.wab), as well as from Netscape Communicator, Microsoft Exchange Personal Address Book, or any text (.csv) file.
For Windows Address Book
1.
On the File menu, point to Import, and then click Address Book.
2.
Select the address book or file type you want to import, and then click Open.
point 2 - choose the csv file

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.
