I do alot of service work on computers and as you know scrub and rebuild is a must on alot of unmaintained machines.  I maybe because of what ever have not been able to find the E-Mail adress list to be able to save it for my clients.  So I print it and they reload manualy, it would be sweet to just load it back after a format & rebuild.

Thanks for any help!

Can I know what email software you are using ?
Different software will have different place to store the address. If you are using Outlook Express, you can save the Wab file into the disc first and copy it back again after you finish rebuilding.

OK I have just did trial and error in my computer and found something interesting. You can actually import your email address to Outlook Express using Wabmig in Outlook Express program.
The email program supported are :
Eudora Pro or Light
LDIF - LDAP
Microsoft Exchange
Microsoft Internet Mail
Netscape
Netscape Communicator
Text File with Comma Separated Values

So you can just run Wabmig, import you address book to Outlook Express, and copy the Wab file. I believe you should be able to find a similar program to use in other Email Program.
