Exporting contacts in OE

  jaraba 13:24 14 Sep 2010

I am using Vista & Windows Mail & when I try exporting contacts for importing to another computer I don't get the option to export in wab format, only csv & vcards format.
Tried csv but on importing them to new comp the groups I had set up in the old address book are not there.
Any ideas/info would be appreciated.

Do I run this on both comps ?

I don't know if the formats between WinMail and OE are the same, but when transferring between different PCs using OE I just copy the wab file across (i.e. I don't use export / import - there's no much point really).

No, just double click the file on the new computer

"creates a self-extracting transfer archive of your data which can be restored by simply running it on the destination computer. The transfer archive can be automatically burned to CD/DVD, written to a USB MP3 player, a removable drive or shared across a network."

Copied C;\user\name\contacts form one computer to another.
All contacts & groups now there.

Thanks for all the suggestions.
