    Re: How to move your Outlook Express address book

    Alternatively you could just copy the file it self.

    Here is how:

    • Select Tools | Address Book... from the menu in Outlook Express.
    • Choose Help | About Address Book from the address book's menu.
    • Highlight the path in the File: box, not including the file name.
      • If the complete string under File: is "C:\Documents and Settings\user_name\Application Data\Microsoft\Address Book\user_name.wab", for example, highlight "C:\and Settings\user_name\Application Data\Microsoft\Address Book\".
      • If your "About Address Book" does not show a File: box, select Run... from the Start menu.
      • Type "regedit".
      • Click OK.
      • Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\­Software\­Microsoft\­WAB\­WAB4\ ­Wab File Name.
      • Highlight the path of the Default key as above.
    • Press Ctrl-C.
    • Click OK.
    • Select Run... from the Start menu.
    • Press Ctrl-V.
    • Click OK.
    • Click on your address book file — the file name in the File: box above; it typically carries your user name — with the right mouse button.
    • Select Copy from the context menu.
    • Open the folder where you want to put the backup copy in Windows Explorer.
    • Select Edit | Paste from the menu.
