I have been using Outlook Express for emailing and newsgroups. I want to start using Outlook 97 for emailing, but still use OE for newsgroups as I don't think Outlook 97 does newsgroups. How do I go about importing all of my messages from the Inbox, Sent Items etc folders, and more importantly my address book from OE to Outlook 97?

Importing the address book.
In OE select your address book and select file, export, Address book.  Select text file (.csv), select a location to save and select fields to export.
Then from Outlook select contacts, File, Import and Export.  Select Import from another program or file.  Choose comma separated values(windows).  Select the file you saved and the destination (Contacts) and Hey Presto.

To export your messages select File, Export in OE.  Select the folders to export and thats it.

Exporting of the folders worked great. Importing of the address book wasn't exactly what I was after. When I click on the Address Book icon in Outlook 97, it is still empty. The Contacts folder has all the names and addresses in it, but I want to be able to use the address book to find the people I want to send mail to, as in OE. Any suggestions?

You need to add The Outlook Address book to your services.  Tools, services... add Outlook Address book.  Exit OL and restart OL.  Choose start with Contacts as your option (address book icon Tools, Options).
Hope thats OK.

This is easier:
right click your contacts in the Outlook bar, select properties, select Outlook address book tab and select show this folder as an email address book.  You may still have to add the Outlook address book as a service.
Your Contacts folder should now show up under address books.
