Converting address books from one format to another can be tricky, since there is no one standard format for address books in email programs. Could you clarify what formats your Magic Mail address book can import? If it can import from any of the formats below then there is a program available as Shareware that can help you. This program is called Address Magic Personal Edition (click the link to go to a download page).

    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

    How to back up Outlook Express items


    Step 1: Copy message files to a backup folder
    Step A: Locate the Store folder
    1. Start Outlook Express.
    2. Click Tools, and then click Options.
    3. On the Maintenance tab, click Store Folder.
    4. In the Store Location dialog box, copy the store location. To do this, follow these steps:
    a. Put the mouse pointer at one end of the box under the Your personal message store is located in the following folder box.
    b. Press and hold the left mouse button, and then drag the mouse pointer across the Your personal message store is located in the following folder box.
    c. Press CTRL+C to copy the location.

    5. Click Cancel, and then click Cancel again to close the dialog box.
    Step B: Copy the contents of the Store folder
    1. Click Start, click Run, press CTRL+V, and then click OK.
    2. On the Edit menu, click Select All.
    3. On the Edit menu, click Copy, and then close the window.
    Step C: Create a backup folder
    1. Right-click any empty area on your desktop, click New, and then click Folder.
    2. Type Mail Backup for the folder name, and then press ENTER.
    Step D: Paste the contents of the Store folder into the backup folder
    1. Double-click the Mail Backup folder to open it.
    2. Right-click inside the Mail Backup folder window, and then click Paste.
    Step 2: Export the Address Book to a .csv file
    Important Make sure that you follow this step if you use multiple identities in Outlook Express.

    Microsoft Outlook Express 5.x and Microsoft Outlook Express 6.0 use a Windows Address Book (.wab) file to store Address Book data. The individual data for each identity is stored in a folder by user name within the .wab file that is used.

    The only way to separate the Address Book data for different identities is to export the data to a .csv file while you are logged in as a specific identity. If the .wab file becomes dissociated from the user identities, the data can be exported only as one total. In this case, the data cannot be exported folder by folder.

    There is another reason to export the .wab file to a .csv file. If the .wab file not exported to a .csv file, but the .wab file is shared with Microsoft Outlook, the addresses are stored in the personal folders (.pst) file in Outlook. When you export the file to a .csv file by using the File menu in Outlook Express, the correct contacts are exported. However, if the Address Book is shared with Outlook, you cannot use the File menu option to export from the Address Book. This option is unavailable.

    To export the Address Book to a .csv file, follow these steps:
    1. On the File menu, click Export, and then click Address Book.
    2. Click Text File (Comma Separated Values), and then click Export.
    3. Click Browse.
    4. Select the Mail Backup folder that you created.
    5. In the File Name box, type address book backup, and then click Save.
    6. Click Next.
    7. Click to select the check boxes for the fields that you want to export, and then click Finish.
    8. Click OK, and then click Close.
    Step 3: Export the mail account to a file
    1. On the Tools menu, click Accounts.
    2. On the Mail tab, click the mail account that you want to export, and then click Export.
    3. In the Save In box, select the Mail Backup folder, and then click Save.
    4. Repeat these steps for each mail account that you want to export.
    5. Click Close.
    Step 4: Export the newsgroup account to a file
    1. On the Tools menu, click Accounts.
    2. On the News tab, click the news account that you want to export, and then click Export.
    3. In the Save In box, select the Mail Backup folder, and then click Save.
    4. Repeat these steps for each news account that you want to export.
    5. Click Close.

    I accidentally permanently deleted my Outlook Express application, can it be restored? My OS is Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit, 2009 version, Service Pack 1


    Windows 7 does not support the use of Outlook Express - this was removed from Windows Vista and Windows 7 and replaced by Windows Mail (in Vista) and by Windows Live Mail (in 7).
    If you have copies of the Outlook Express mail database files (inbox.dbx etc) you should be able to migrate these into Windows Live Mail using the Import Messages option in the File menu and selecting Microsoft Outlook Express 6 then browsing to the folder where your mail database files for Outlook Express are held.
    If you have previously exported your Outlook Express account details (name.iaf) - you can import these into Windows Live Mail too through the Import option in the Accounts page.
    Lastly, if you still have your Outlook Express Address book (name.wab) this can be imported in to your Windows Live Contacts by selecting File then Import Windows Address book (.wab).

    When I try to add an Email address the display tab comes up with persons name but the email address does not show. What am I doing wrong. Help


    You're not doing anything wrong. The e-mail address is stored there in your address book. Outlook and Outlook Express just display this as the contacts name. It will still go through to their e-mail address.

    To get the e-mail address, just double click their name.

    Okay, you have to have the server information in order to set up your e-mail in Outlook Express (i.e. POP and SMTP server names like mail.optonline.net and so forth.) Just navigate over to the support page for your internet service or e-mail provider, and they should have the step-by-step instructions for you for Outlook Express including settings.

    After you enter the information from the support page, the Outlook Express account wizard will give you the opportunity to send a test message. Send one, and it should work if you entered the settings properly.

    Now, regarding address books, when you use Outlook Express, when you set up an e-mail account, it sets you up with a blank address book. You can then fill up contacts in it as you go along, just like a paper one. But, you don't even need to have a single address in that address book as long as you know the e-mail addresses you are sending to and can type them in properly (like fixya@fixya.com for example) in the "To:" field. So, don't sweat that too much. It's really just for convenience.

    I hope this helps.

    Outlook Express First, you need to start Windows XP and launch Outlook Express. If you have a dual-boot configuration (Windows XP and Windows Vista) you should export everything to a location that is accessible from both operating systems. If you have Windows XP installed and you plan to erase it and upgrade to Windows Vista, we recommend that you save everything to a back-up disk and import from it later, after you install Windows Vista.

    Exporting the Address Book
    Go to the File menu, select Export and click on Address Book.
    The Address Book Export Tool will be launched. Select the second option - Text File (Comma Separated Values) - and click on the Export button
    You will be asked to select the path where you want to export your Address Book. Click on Browse, go to the folder where you want to save your Address Book, type the name of the file in which it will be saved and click the Save button.
    The CSV Export window will open. Here you will have to select which contact details you want to export. Select the ones you want or, for more safety, select all the fields and then press the Finish button.
    The Address Book has now been exported to the chosen location.

    Exporting E-mail Accounts Settings
    In Outlook Express, go to the Tools menu and then select Accounts.

    A window with all your internet accounts will be opened. Go to the Mail tab and from the list of e-mail accounts select the first you want to export. Click on it and then press Export. You will choose the folder and the file name where your settings will be exported. After that, click on Save.

    Repeat this procedure for all the e-mail accounts you want to export to Windows Mail.

    Exporting E-mail Messages
    Go to Tools and then select Options.
    Go to the Maintenance tab and click on the Store Folder button.
    A small window will open and you will see the location where Outlook Express stores all your e-mail messages. Copy that location, close Outlook Express, open that location in Windows Explorer and then copy all the content to a different location.
    If you have a lot of messages, the process will take quite some time to finish.

    Windows Mail
    After you have finished the export process, reboot and start or install Windows Vista. When you are ready to import all your e-mail accounts, messages and address book to Windows Mail, go to the Start Menu - All Programs and launch its shortcut.
    IMPORTANT: during the importing process we recommend that you run Windows Mail as an administrator. If you do not run it as an administrator the import process might fail.
    Importing the Address Book
    In Windows Mail, go to the File menu, select Import and then Windows Contacts.
    In the Import to Windows Contacts window, select the first option - CSV (Comma Separated Values) - and press the Import button.
    Now you have to Browse to the file where you exported the Address Book from Outlook Express and then press Open. When you are done press Next.
    In the CSV Import window choose the fields you want to import. If you are not sure which fields to select, select all of them and press the Finish button.
    Now the Address Book has been moved from Outlook Express to Windows Mail.

    Importing E-mail Accounts Settings
    First, go to Tools -> Accounts. In the Internet Accounts window, press the Import button.
    Now you have to browse to the location where you exported your e-mail accounts settings and select the file containing those settings.
    Repeat this procedure for all your e-mail accounts. All the restored accounts settings will be listed in the Internet Accounts window.
    Importing E-mail Messages
    Go to the File menu, select Import and then click on Messages.
    In the Windows Mail Import window, you need to select the third option - Microsoft Outlook Express 6 - and click on Next.
    Select Import mail from an OE6 store directory and press the OK button.
    Now you have to browse to the folder where you exported all your e-mail messages, click the Select folder button which takes you to the next screen at which point you then press Next.
    Select the message folders you want to import and press Next.
    After the import is finished, the wizard will show a Import Complete message. Press the Finish button.
    Now all your e-mail messages from Outlook Express will be available in Windows Mail. By default, all your imported messages will be placed in the Imported Folder. You can move them to any other folder using the drag and drop procedure.

    Transfering mail setup from Windows xp to a windos vista machine with EasySuite


    I'm not 100% sure about vista because I hate it but I can help you copy all of your outlook express data to a CD\DVD disk & your address book. Your network settings for express account is a phone call to your ISP.
    If vista's explorer is set up like XP you should be able to copy your data into outlook express.
    Open all these folders on you XP system.
    User name\Application Data\Identities\{xxxxxxx}\Microsoft\Outlook Express
    Copy the Outlook Express folder to your CD.
    User name\Application Data\Microsoft\Address Book. Copy Address Book folder.
    Making sure you have everything.
    Open, User name\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities\{xxxxxxx}\Microsoft\Outlook Express
    Compair the two Outlook Express folder files. CD will not allow copy of same named folder.
    If Vista's lay out is the same as XP than copy Outlook Express folder to Vista.
    Suggest you have your current ISP setting /account setup before copying to Vista

    Let me know if this works for you!
    Good Luck & Kind Regards.
