What is PSTS, is this personal phone products from Boarland ?
Which address book are you importing ?

Typically import functions should be under the FILE menu

In Outlook, you can use the Import and Export Wizard as the interface for Address Book conversion. To convert a WAB file, follow these steps: 1. Start Outlook if it is not currently running. 2. On the File menu, click Import and Export. 3. Select Import Internet Mail and Addresses, and then click Next. 4. Select Outlook Express 4.x, 5 from the list, and then click Next. 5. Select the product for which you wish to convert items from the list, and then click Next. 6. Select any combination of the Mail or Addresses from the items listed.

NOTE: With the exception of rules conversion from Outlook Express, the steps to convert addresses is the same. 7. Click Next. 8. Select a destination for the imported address data. The destination depends on the type of Outlook installation you selected initially. a. The Internet Mail Only installation of Outlook 98 allows only the Contacts folder as the destination. b. The Corporate or Workgroup option allows the options of Personal Address Book or Outlook Contacts. 9. Select the appropriate duplicate items option. Click Finish to complete the import.
Hope that helps..........

Tip

Microsoft Outlook tips


Create underlines without any text
This tip works with the majority of Microsoft Office applications. Easily create an underlined space by pressing CTRL + U to start the underline, then press SHIFT + Space for each underlined space you wish to create. An example of how this could be used is for printable forms, for example: Name: .
Print only sections of a document
Save on your printer ink by selectively printing in Windows programs such as Microsoft Word, Internet Explorer, WordPad, Outlook, etc. To do this highlight portions of text you wish to print and click print. In the printer dialog window under Page Range choose the option Selection. It is important to realize that not all programs or printer drivers support this feature.
Help control your incoming e-mail with the rules wizard
Use Microsoft Outlook Rules Wizard to help screen your e-mail and delete mail that you are not interested in.
Additional information about the Rules Wizard as well as information about preventing SPAM can be found on document CH000477.

How do you down load email addresses from your computer, to install on a new computer?


I have put details of copying over addresses and the emails for both Outlook express and Outlook.Hope this helps.

Outlook Express
In Outlook Express, select File --> Export and select Address book. I recommend that you use a comma-separated values (CSV) format as it's more portable and can be recovered if something happens since it's just a basic text file. Copy that onto the new computer, choose File --> Import, and select the CSV file. That should do it!
Backing up email is more difficult, however.
Here's the basic process in Outlook Express: Under Tools --> Options, click the "maintenance" tab. This will tell you where your email is stored. Now copy all of those files onto your new computer (if you make a CDROM you'll have a nice permanent backup too) and then put them in the exact same folder on the new system (while you aren't running Outlook Express). Restart the app and you should have all your mailboxes intact.
Outlook does have an appropriate archive/restore function too, if you want to try that instead. Under File, select Import/Export. Select "export to a file," then select the mailbox that you want to back up. If your mailboxes are like mine, this will produce a fairly large file, depending on the size of your mailbox. Copy these exported files onto the new computer, then use File --> Import/Export --> Import from a file and you should have the mailboxes on your new system.
Outlook
You'll have to export the Address Book from the computer then import it into Outlook on the new computer
1) On your desktop click File --> Export --> Address Book
2) Select the Comma Seperated Values (Windows) as your output format
3) Select the folder you want to export - in this case Contacts
4) Type a name for your file - example: addresses
5) Be sure there is a checkmark next to Export then click Finish
This is the important part: You'll need to copy or save the file to a flash drive or floppy. Alternatively, you can email the file to yourself or burn on CD if you don't have a floppy or flash drive available. Either way the file needs to be transfered to your new laptop.
1) On your laptop open Outlook and click File --> Import --> Import from another file or program (this varies depending on your version of Outlook)
2) Select Comma Seperated Values (Windows) - the same option you selected when you exported
3) Click Browse to retrieve the file you exported
4) Choose either replace, not to duplicate or duplicate under the options menu
5) Select destination folder - since this is your address book you would click Contacts
6) Be sure there is a checkmark next to Import then click Finish

Move the e-mail addresses around to suit me.


What Program are you useing for Email first off, and if Outlook or anything like it, create a new Group and add them to it, also alphabetical nameing is of importance too, if you don't want to create a group, you just add other Charicters to the begining of the name, such as ~,!,@, and the like

HI Azkinney,

I can help you it's not pretty but it works without downloading or buying any programs.

1- create an email with your aol interface
2- open your address book and add everyone
3- don't send the email but select the addresses you have in your "TO" field of the email you created
4- copy the selected addresses to a word processing program like word pad
5- save the new document as a .txt file
6- open this document with Microsoft excel
7- export the document with a CSV file format
8- outlook can import CSV files into the address book

You know its a lot of steps but its the simplest way I have found since AOL hates their customers using other emails and will be as much help as a canker sore on your nose.

I hope this helped. Please don't forget to rate the answer it helps me with my solutions.
