Hi Experts,

earlier I used OE and now I'd like to export my address book  into Outlook 2003. Would be this possible?

Yes.... you should be able to do this:

Open Outlook,
click File
Select Import and Export
Select import from another program or file
Choose Personal Address Book
Browse to your Personal Address Book and select it.
Click Ok.


hope this helps!

Greetings, kacor !

When you initially install Outlook, you would be given an option to import the Address Book from OE. If this did not occur, in Outlook go to File > Import and Export > Import Internet Mail and Addresses > Outlook Express 4 or 5. Select Address Book and unselect Mail and Rules.  Click Next

Best wishes!

kacor,

What type of environment are you in?  Single computer? Network of computers? Exchange?

One reason that Import is grayed out  is because a group policy is blocking this feature. Do you have a group policy blocking importing of emails?
