Default Importing an Outlook address book to Outlook Express

when doing this, it seems that Outlook uses like a different file extension for the address book than Outlook Express. Any tips on the best way to import my Outlook contacts into Express??? Thanks everyone

Yes, the same way you exported it from the main source.

you're right.
How did you export it? What's the file extension (eg: .xls, .pab)? What versions are you using of Outlook/Express?
need more info.

From Outlook you need to export the address book as a CSV (Comma Separated Value Windows) then you can import it into Express. Works for me...
Good Luck
