Hello all :thumbsup:
I need your help. I'm getting new pc XP and I want to copy all my address book from the older pc (also XP) to the new machine.
What is the best and safest way of doing this.
The conclusion will be I will have 2 pc's with the same address books.
Also same question about favorites - how to copy and transfer them?
Thanks for your help :flowers:

For IE favourites, goto the file menu in IE / import&export, and follow the wizard.

To export your address book, open outlook express, and goto file / export / address book.

Navagate to C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\Application Data\Microsoft\Address Book and backup (e.g. copy) the *.wab (Windows Address Book) file.

Now all you have to do is put that file in the same location on the new computer, modifing the name of the file to match the current users name.

If for some reason there is not a *.wab file in that location try searching for it.

If you were using Outlook you would search for *.pab (Personal Address Book)

Google and personal knowledge < Outlook express (e.g. Address Book)
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?...kb;en-us;287070 < outlook

Hope that helps.
