Have a look at these threads at click here and click here.

These are for going from OE to Outlook but will presumably work in reverse!

If you get stuck post back and I'll see if I can help further!

Have you tried the Import Facility in Outlook Express in the Menu or under Mail. I do not use it now so just cannot remember exact Place that the Import is

You can export the contacts in Outlook xp as a CSV file, file\import-export\export as a file, select CSV windows and then select the contacts folder and save it to your desktop.

Then in OE click file\import\other address book and select CSV and select the file on the desktop. Works fine for me!

Gandalf it works fine and the CSV file appears on the desktop but when I try to import it to OE it throws up an error message

Are you clicking on 'OTHER address book' rather than 'address book' when importing into OE? If you are clicking on 'other address book' delete the file and start again. I did it before my last posting and it worked fine.

When exporting the file from Outlook are you selecting CSV.windows and not CSV DOS?


  Mad Mick 23:42 06 Jan 2004

Yes, I am selecting csv.windows. Do I need to map custom fields?

Going to bed. Will try again tomorrow. Thanks to all for the help so far.

In Outlook Express - open the Address Book - go to Tools - Options and try setting it to share address books. This may acheive what you want (though it doesn't actually import the sddresses).
