    after reinstalling my dsl components, i lost my outlook express contacts, because i accidentally installed outlook express from the install cd, when i already had it.
    is there maybe some place where my contacts from my old oe were stored as a backup or something?

    By the way, it's possible that your WAB file is hidden, so make sure you go to Tools, Folder Options, View and check "Show Hidden Files and Folders".

    KerriAnn -

    Don't know if you are aware, but you can very easily create a back up of your address book, to store on a floppy, CD, second HDD, Etc...

    Address Book > File> Export > Address Book (WAB)


    Personally, for me, loosing the address book and/or My Favorites would be one huge headache. Everything is much easier to track down.
