Outlook express address mail folders

Post by Dennis » Tue Oct 09, 2007 6:54 pm

I would like to be able to restore my email address folders, keeping my girlfriend folder separate from my wives folder (for example), but .WAB or .CSV does not retain them. When  I restore I then have to create the folders and drag the appropriate adrresses into the correct folders.

OE doesn't do a very good job of importing folders in the address book. Here's how I do it:

Instead of using Import/Export, save the WAB file to a backup location. Use the wab file to replace the existing file on another PC with all of the folders intact.
