View Full Version : Outlook express V5 address book recovery ?

05-10-2002, 03:58 PM
My friend has a damaged address book from Outlook express #5, a *.wab file, I am trying to import that file into the new Outlook express installation, but when we try and import it the computer says, An error occurred during the import process,

The question is, Is there a program that can clean the file up or read the parts not cursing the error, personally I prefer to use the *.csv file format at least you can read a *.csv file with a word-processor.

Are you using a version of Outlook Express either equal to or greater than what the address book was created in?

Thank you Merlin

Form what the customer told me both are variant versions of number 5, not sure if the new install is 0.x less than the first.

I say don't you ancestor pull the sword out of the stone, no hung on he was the one with the magic wand.

thanks from Eric
