I have Win XP with multiple users. I recently had to reinstall our email stuff onto a new computer. I have been able to find mailboxes and one of the address book files (.wab). HOwever, my question is, with multiple users in XP, does OE create/save seperate address book files for each user. In the address book that I found, it only has information from one of the address books, not information from both of them.

Any help on how to restore the second address book would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for the information, but I didn't save a copy of the data previously. I was able to find a address book file, but it only had address data for one of the two users on the computer. So, I am still looking to find the location or possible file extension for an address book for the second user.

Thanks,
Shona

You will likely find the address book for the second user by logging in under that users account.
