In Win 7, I use Windows Mail. I have about 100 contacts in my 'contacts'.

 

I want to transfer them all to another computer -  copy them all, in one shot - just so that the main details, such as the name and email address are maintained.

 

I spent a good deal of time trying to do this, but there seems to be no way. Windows seems to make it impossilbe.

 

Can anyone suggest how I can do this ?

 

Thanks.

Thanks OldPhil.

 

I did try searching before but got a plethora of junk replies. In amongst the lot in your link, I did find the answer.

 

For anyone else that might have the same question;

 

- Create a destination folder - say 'Exp' on your desktop.

- Open Windows mail

- Open contacts

- Go to 'file' then click 'export' and then select your destination folder.

- Click OK

 

They should now be all in your destination folder. They were in mine, and I emailed the folder to my Linux machine, and Linux opened them up in a breeze.

 

GO LINUX !!!
