How do I import or transfer my email addresses

I have just replaced a friends old 486 DX40 with 850mb hard drive with a new PC Athlon xp2000 256mb ram 60gb hard drive.

the only thing he wants off the old disk is his email address book cos it has 952 addresses in it. I have tried copying wab.exe but it didn't work. does anyone know how please.

By the way the old 850mb hard drive will not work in the new computer as it has been drivespaced to make it look like a 1.6gb drive.

Open Outlook Express, choose File > Export, save to floppy.

The open Outlook Express on the new PC, choose File > Import

OE version 5

I have just had an email from a forum member with 7 pages of instructions. I am reading them now.
