I recently recovered information from a computer that would not start due to motherboard problems. I have the outlook express folder which let's me import all of the messages back into outlook. I really need the address book and I think that comes in form of a wab file. Is there a copy that gets made automatically on the computer once I create addresses. I have looked but can't find this folder and don't know whether it is possible to get the addresses back! Any help would be greatly appreciated.
