i'm using windows xp and outlook xp the .pst was backed up and imported into the new install.
all the email and contacts are there but when you try to access the contacts you get a message that access is denied. there is now read only attribute. If I export the contacts as a .csv file and then erase the contacts and reimport them it works but there must be a better way

TIA

Locate the .wab file in the user's profile. A quick way is to right-mouse-click on the Start button and select Explore. An Explorer window will open showing the user's profile. Within Application Data->Address Book will be the user's *.wab file. Right mouse click on it and select Properties->Security. Add the new user to the security list and give them Modify access.

The location of the *.wab file is Microsoft->Application Data->Address Book.

Sorry, it's still not right, it's Application Data->Microsoft->Address Book; the user's logon ID followed by .wab.
