How to import Outlook Express messages, address book and rules
In Outlook, click the File menu, and then click Import and Export.
Click Import Internet Mail and Addresses, and then click Next.
Use one of the following methods according to your version of Outlook:
In Outlook 2007, click Outlook Express 4.x, 5.x, 6.x or Windows Mail.
In Outlook 2003, click Outlook Express 4.x, 5.x, 6.x.
In Outlook 2002, click Outlook Express 4.x, 5.
Make sure that the Import Mail, Import Address Book, and Import Rules check boxes are selected, and then click Next.

Note You cannot import rules into Outlook 2007 because the rules subset in Outlook 2007 has been extended, and it has more options than the earlier versions of Outlook have.
Select to import into either the Outlooks Contacts Folder or the Personal Address Book.

Note In Outlook 2007 and in Outlook 2003, you can import only into the Outlook Contacts Folder.
Select how you want duplicates to be handled during import.
Click Finish.
