    I don't have the old PC to use this process. I have my old Outlook Express Address file on my external Hard drive that is connected to my new PC using Windows 7. Can I still use the Easy Transfer Program if the external hard drive with the file is attached to my new pc running windows 7?

    Also, I have added my Comcast.mail account, will the address list show up ther also?

    When I did it, it was on a singular machine, so I haven't had that experience, but it wouldn't necessarily hurt to try it. Since it's backed up on an external, you're not going to lose anything (hardware failures notwithstanding).

    I figured it out. I new when I attempted to import the address book from my external harddrive, the system indicated it was importing the data. It did! I added one new address to establish my first contact, then clicked this small box in the upper right cornen of the contact list and click user data and it dropped my old contact data in. Thanks!
