Windows 98se
Outlook Express v.6
the address book shows 2000+ entries
the contact list shows none.
Can anyone help me through this so the address book entries also show in the contacts list.
I have imported the address book, but the contacts still do not show.

Open the address book, you will probally find they are in a folder by them selves, you can drag them into the folder you want.

Nope - their in the Main Identies Contacts; which if I am correct should show in the contacts list.
Any other suggestions?

Open the address book, go File > Export > Address Book (wab) give it any name and save it.
Open OE, go File > Import > Address Book, Navigate to the previously exported wab file.
Works for me but dunno if it will work for you or not, but may be worth a shot though

Is this what you mean.
If it you want the contacts to show in this list.
Right click the toolbar and click customize.
In the add available toolbar buttons, click contacts,click add, click close.
Then click the contact button on the toolbar and all your contacts wiil show.
