    I just bought my wife an iMac. How can I import her .WAB address book file from Windows Outlook Express into Apple Mail?

    Can you export the addresses as VCards? Failing that, I think you can also use tab-separated text. What export options do you get?

    And by the way, you should import the addresses into Address Book, which is where Mail looks for contacts.

    Vcards can only be exported one at a time. The options are .wab, vcard, Microsoft Exchange Personal Address Book, and text files (.csv.) The text file option only exports the names, no other info, even though several categories are selected.

    O2M doesn't support Outlook Express, and littlemachines.com doesn't support Firefox.

    Mail seems to support mailbox importing from OE, but I can't figure out how it works, either.

    This is good. Primative, but effective. Thanks.
