Good luck. Gordon
I use MS Office XP, with Outlook as my primary e-mail client. Unfortunately I can't use my address book - the one in Outlook Express is OK but that's used for different addresses - not only can I not use it as a shortcut to various e-mail adresses, I haven't lost them, they're all in the contacts folder, I cannot put any in there at all!
I normally back up all data on a regular basis anyway, but some time ago, I did this just before the system went down, necessitating a complete re-format and re-install, and possibly this address book was lost then.
I use Outlook Express as a secondary client, as my ISP offers ''disposable'' e-mail addresses, and I use OE to send these, but Outlook has better features and so is my main client.
