    I exported all messages, but get an error when trying to export the address book. Only one .wab file on the computer and it's irrelevant. Is there a way to build a new contact list in Outlook from all of your messages without having to enter all manually?

    Select All your email in the inbox

    Go to File select import and export option

    Select export to a file in the window that pops up

    select Comma separated Values (Windows)

    Select Inbox

    save the file to a location and name it whatever you like

    Click Map Custom Fields in next pop up

    To keep it basic I delete all fields in the right hand pane except From(Name) and From(address) you may want other fields

    click finish after process follow the same import export process from the file menu

    select import from another program or file

    select Comma separated Values (Windows)

    Locate the file and tick the radio option do not allow duplicate items

    Click next and select the contacts folder click next

    Click Map custom fields then click next

    in the value pane on the left hand side drag the first item to either the Name or Company field in the right hand panel

    Do the same for the email address however drag this to the email field in the right hand panel

    Click OK

    Click Finish

    Your contact list will process and be created.
