Simply go to your old computer first, and open Outlook Express Go to file, and then export From there select Address Book and left click Select "Microsoft Exchange Personnal Address Book" and click on export Choose where to save the file, I suggest the desktop or straight to the floppy drive whichever is easier Then get the file to your new computer, open up Outlook Express on it and go to file, then Import, then Address Book Select the file you just created and then you are done.
