In OE it's File/Import/Address book

Hmm no it doesnt seem to be here on this one. There is an Import / Export option but then only from Outlook and Eudora or whatever that is.

Maybe if i import to OE then take it form there. BRB

It is asking for a .wab file within OE?

wab is your address book. Why don't you try exporting from MSN?

No no good, i onlt get to save 'My Contacts' as a .ctt file format. :confused:

How strange, i think maybe i used IE to import them last time, but for the life of me just canot remember how. I logged onto www.hotmail.com (http://www.hotmail.com) and logged in and whent to the 'Contacts' section. Its doing my head in, i really need them re-added.

I hate using web Email.

I know you're lazy, that's why I said it http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif :D

I'm just wondering to myself. Someone else recetly asked me about this importing, saying they did it from MSN before and can't find it now. So maybe they've removed it???

Well my Hotmail account was already set up Within Office Outlook. So i read the article and just added a new Hotmail account to Outlook Express. There are simple step by step instructions to set up a Hotmail account, http is already enable within Outlook Express.

Anyway once OE was set up and all 200 contacts was imported via Hotmails server (type them in Neteru says, do i look sad. LOL) then i went back to Office Outlook ad went to File>Import Selected files and adress's. Then selected Outlook Express as the source.

And whalla, its 'SpArKy the MaGiCiAnO' dud dud da da duhhh!
