I want to import the Outlook express 6.0 address book into Microsoft Outlook 2000.
The importation failed for the distribution list. I find the named list but there is no member. The list is empty.

Any Ideas ?

Hi PROMISYS,
did you import like this?

Open Outlook.
From the File menu, select Import and Export.
From the Choose an Action to Perform list box, select Import Internet Mail and Addresses.
Click Next.
From the Select the Internet Mail Application to Import From list box, select Outlook Express 4.x, 5. This choice will work for Outlook Express 6, as well.
Verify that there are checks in the Import Mail, Import Address Book, and Import Rules check boxes.
Click Next.
From the Select the Destination for Imported Addresses list, select the Outlook Contacts Folder option.
From the Options list, select the Allow Duplicates to be Created option.
Click Finish.
An Import Summary message box will pop up letting you know the status of the transfer. Make sure that 100% of your e-mail, addresses, rules, and distribution lists are imported correctly.
You will now have the option of either saving the summary or returning to Outlook:
If you wish to save a copy of the Import Summary click Save in Inbox. You will receive a copy of the Import Summary in your inbox.
If you do not wish to save a copy, click OK.

PROMISYS,
Mail Lists, which existed in Messenger, are converted to Groups in Outlook Express and to personal distribution lists in Outlook Contacts.

Export from that list in OE to a comma delimited file and then import into Outlook from there.
