I originally used OE v6 for my emails and contacts. I recently installed Outlook from the MS Office cd to try it out. But it works in a way I don't prefer.
I tried using OE again, but its installation is corrupted due to/and the Windows Address Book (AB) is corrupted.
I have tried deleting the.WAB file and re-executing the AB, but to no avail.
I tried using the Add/Remove cpl to uninstall OE 6-but it does not remove OE, so I can't reinstall it to see if that will fix the problem.
I still have a backup of my OE .dbx email folders and I've noted a .PST file in an \Exchange folder that seems to hold my Contacts.
How can I get the Contacts in Outlook back into the AB and fix the OE mi-configuration?
