I use Outlook Express 5 on a Win 95 system. I also use it on a Win 98 system. I want to export my address book from the 95 system and import it on the 98 system, but "export" and "import" are grayed out on the File menu of the 95 system. Cn anyone tell me how to make the "export" option active?

You must have Microsoft Windows Messaging, Microsoft Outlook 98, or Microsoft Exchange installed to export messages from Outlook Express. The necessary support library files and container file types are installed only by these programs.  To resolve this issue, install Windows Messaging and export the messages to the Personal Folders (.pst) file created. Then, copy the .pst file to the other computer and import the messages into Outlook Express.

Hope this helps...
