Multiple Address Books in OE

Question: Multiple Address Books in OE

I need to setup a Address Book that will be changed on a monthly basis, I create a CSV file and import it into Netscape 4.79 right now. My issue is I would like to get rid of Netscape and switch to Outlook Express, but i'm having trouble with adding a new Address Book. I can create a folder and import it into the Main Identity Address Book and move them to the new folder. This will only work for the initial setup, as soon as people use they will have there own contacts, and I will not be able to move them. I was hoping there was a way to import a Folder, with the contacts already listed. Any help is greatly appreciated.

How do I take some of my contacts in outlook 2002, and change their location? I would like to have a personal address book, and a business address book. Where do I start? Any help is appreciated.

Answer:Multiple address books?

In the Folder List, right click your Contacts and create two new folders for your Personal Address book and Business Address book. Once created, all you have to do is drag & drop the contacts into the proper location.
When sending an email. Click on the "To..." then on the drop down menu titled, "Show names from the:" where you can select the proper folder to grab the email address.

I was wondering if there's a way to make and modify multiple address books. I subscribe to a website that allows me to import my OE email addresses, but I only want to import certain email addresses, not the whole WAB. I tried making a copy of my existing primary WAB, re-naming it and deleting certain contacts, but it directly affected/changed my primary WAB at the same time (synchronized?). Any help on this would be greatly appreciated. Merry Christmas!!!!!


Edit: I have OE 6 on a Win XP Pro SP2 desktop.

I've been trying to export my Yahoo!'s address book to MS's address book for a number of years now.

The individual addresses will be exported in a .CVS file for any program that does .CVS but the .cvs file will not include folders and even if it would the addresses and folders are separated and not left intact.

Does anyone know a solution for this?

How can one get the address book that you want to export get duplicated exactly as it is with "addresses in the folders" that you use all intact?

I doubt if this is the best, or cheapest way, but we use MS Access, with the addresses set up in a table together with supplementary data as needed.The addresses can then be printed as labels via Access's labels form template.Probably similar facilities exist in cheaper or free Database packages.

I have a friend that just had his computer reloaded. He is using OUtlook 2000 for his contacts and calendar, and using outlook express 6.0 for email. He likes the outlook express because it puts the attatchment right under the subject line.
Now, he states he has address in his outlook express and is putting address into outlook, I have know idea why. But he stated that when he adds a contact in Outlook that he could add it to his groups list in his Outlook express. (confused yet?) But now, when he puts a contact in OUtlook, it is not appearing in Outlook express address book.

Answer:Importing Address Books in W8

Are you using Outlook 2013, or the default Outlook program that came with Windows 8?
If you are using the mail app that came with Windows, you can't "import" your contacts, because the app is actually a browser interface. Instead, if you are using a web-based mail program like Hotmail, Gmail, you add that email account to the mail app.
If you are trying to import the information from a .pst file, you will need to upload the contacts to Hotmail or via another Outlook client -- not the app, but the Outlook program that comes bundled with Office.

We run Terminal Server 4 with Citrix Metaframe. We have Outlook for the users to get their email with. (No one has a PC, everyone is on WYSE WinTerm thinclients). I have created a Personal Address Book for everyone to use but when people go to access it maybe 2 or 3 people can use it. The rest of the people get an error saying you cant log in to the PAB. How do I make this work?

Answer:Outlook 97 and Personal Address Books

I don't think you can share a PAB. Get everyone out of it Outlook. Have a person who was previously unable to get into the PAB, try again.

I'm not familiar at all with your hardware. But, you can't put PSTs or PABs on network shares because it's like any other unshareable file--it's in use. Since the PAB would be in use when Joanie has Outlook open, Joanie has to close Outlook for Jimmie to get into the PAB.

If you're using a mail server you should be able to set up a global address list.

If you aren't, then the best I can suggest is to have one person be in charge of the address list--everybody submits changes to that person. Once a week, or however often, she puts out a new PAB with instructions to save it to their desktop, close Outlook, overwrite old PAB with new PAB, open Outlook.

Sucks. I know. I hope I've misunderstood what you want.

This works in 2003, not sure about 2007: click on Contacts, where you have the list of Mail, Calendar, Contacts, Tasks etc (mine is at the bottom left of the Outlook screen). This should then show the Contacts folder in the blank bit of screen above it. Right click on Contacts, select New Folder and call it what you like. Then go back to your original Contacts, open the folder and thendrag and drop the ones you want to move.If it doesn't work for 2007, my humble apologies!

Sooooo I imported everything from Outlook Express, and much to my dismay, all of my contacts were piled into one group.

How do you organize them? Just create a different "address book" for each group? Is there an extension that makes organization easier?

Also, which Thunderbird extensions do you use?

Answer:Organizing Thunderbird address books

I haven't found an extension to make it easier... I just manually made different addressbooks and split my contacts up, remembering to keep a copy in the individual addressbook as well as the "collected addresses" (or personal address book - it's for the spam filter).

As for extensions, I use the addressbook sidewindow, which places a sidewindow underneath my accounts for quick access, minimize to tray, and webmail extension with the HOtmail and Yahoo extensions for getting my webmail.

I'm on a MacBook Pro running 10.6.4 and using Thunderbird 3.0.6. (I've been with the Mac 2 years and with Thunderbird much longer, pretty much without problems.) I spent most of yesterday editing some address books and set up a couple of new lists. Today, I find my new address books have vanished without a trace.

I can't pin down relevant differences between the list of .mab files that show now in my directory ("finder" data/library/T-bird) and those that appear in the time machine back-up from a few days ago. In both there are address books 1, 2, and 5, no 3 no 4). But I don't usually view this directory and may not have a good eye for what counts. When I attempt to open the back-up copies, which I think I can do only with T-bird, it appears I am shunted to the new data.

Should I assume the work I did is lost and gone forever?

All of my contact lists are saved "last name first" in the "file as" box in the individual contact record. I have enabled all of my contact lists as "show this folder as an E-mail Address Book" in the properties for that folder.

When I click on the "To" button to address a new message the contact lists show first name first. All of them are shown this way other than the "global".

How can I change these to show last name first?

Answer:e-mail address books, Outlook 2000

By default the eprsonal address book shows Last Name First Name and the Global always shows First Name Last Name. You can change the personal one in the address book properties, but I think Exchange is always that way for the global list.

I am the tech support for my father and I'm having difficulty finding an answer to a problem. Prior to upgrading him from Windows 7 to 10, he could make envelopes in WordPerfect 12 using his address books from SeaMonkey. When choosing the address, his address books from SeaMonkey 2.35 would show in Corel Address Book 8. Now they do not. We reverted back to Windows Seven, but the problem remained. Since the issue occurred with Windows version changes, I logically assume the question belongs here.

I've remoted in and seen the following errors. On the first attempt to open the "Other" address book I see this:There is no email program association to perform the requested action. Please install an email program or, if one is already installed, create an association in the Default Programs control panel.

This error only appears once unless I exit and restart WordPerfect. When I click okay, I see the following error:MAPI Address Books will not be available. Please check the information services set up in the active user profile and your installation of Windows Messaging.

I've checked and SeaMonkey Mail is the default email client. When checking the association for .mapimail, I changed it to SeaMonkey from Unknown Application, but it did not help. I cannot find a solution anywhere. I've even tried the Mozillazine forum. There have been 1100 views and not a single response. Does anyone have an idea what I can try next?

I have Thunderbird as an e-mail client on both my XP desktop and my Win 7 laptop. I managed to create the many lists I had in OE under "Personal Address Book" in T-bird on the desktop. I then imported it into T-bird on the laptop, naming it the same as the T-bird default ("Personal Address Book"), assuming it would overwrite the existing book of the same name. Didn't. So I now have two address books with the same name.

No problem, I thought; just delete the original one. Can't; the delete option is dimmed when I try to delete it. Tried deleting all the addresses in it. Still can't delete it.

Mozilla's "help" site is the worst help site I've ever encountered, so no help there. So how can I get rid of the now empty Personal Address Book?

Answer:Solved: Importing address books from T-bird

Imports always come in as a new, separate AB.
The PAB can't be deleted as it's permanently linked to it's Abook.mab data file in the Profile folder, it's the default and you can't delete the default.

If I understand correctly, you've got an Address Book you've Imported with everything you want and have emptied out the original Personal Address Book.
Basically what you want to do is have the Imported book replace the PAB.
You can do that by swapping the appropriate .mab files in the Profile folder.
If you've Imported and/or created a few Address Books, this can be a bit confusing as each will have it's own data file and they are not named the same as the AB in the display.

abook.mab is the primary PAB
Each user created AB will have a corresponding file sequentially numbered. abook-1.mab,abook-2.mab, etc

history.mab is the file for Collected Addresses

impab.mab is for Imported AB's
Each additional Imported AB will be sequentially numbered. impab-1.mab, impab-2.mab, etc.

Assuming you've only created one Imported AB, you simply delete the abook.mab and rename the impab.mab to abook.mab and it will display in the PAB.
If you've Imported more than one, it can be a "crap shoot" as even if you've deleted the Imported book in T-bird, the mab file sometimes stays and the next Import will be the next numbered impab.mab.

In case you need this to get to the Profile folder.

Answer:address books in widows live mail

The basic program, like Windows Mail and Outlook Express before it, has one address book if you use it locally (without signing in to Windows Live Mail). If you sign in with your LiveID you will also have a contact list for each LiveID you set up at If all you want to do is divide your contacts into groups (called "categories") you can do that within the same ID or even locally without signing in. The Contacts window of WLM should have an option called "Add a Category" for the purpose assigning contacts to groups.

my address books are messed up.
collected is there, personal is empty and my business one just disappeared.

I went to my profile folder and the abook.mab files are still there and populated.

A few days before I was having trouble with address books, so I researched online, found info about corrupted abooks and sure enough found a lot of garbage in the files such as <(80=0)> {1:^80 {(k^C0:c)(s=9)} [1:^82(^BF=0)]} which I deleted.

Now I am following directions from this post
but it's not working.

When I look at the new abook-4 file created for the new address book, it already has the above garbage in it.

When I delete the new abook-4 file and then rename the file that does have the addresses in it to abook-4, and then go back to thunderbird, the new address book is empty.

Now what?

I'm guessing I need to back-up the abooks that have addresses in them, and create a new profile, and then copy the populated abooks to the new profile, after making sure any garbage is deleted?

How do address books gets corrupt in the first place?
How do I prevent it from happening?

Hi everyone

Hope this finds all with something to smile about in the New Year, had a bit of a problem at work (see attachment)

I re-did an email profile on someone&#8217;s computer, (via remote) so it should have pulled down the most up to date address book from our exchange.

However as you can see from the left one (which is my address book at work, which I have recently updated), with the persons current profile and job title, but the one on the right is the profile I re-did

In his address book it shows a very old email address and a job title that the email recipient has not held in years in fact this profile is not only not in use anymore, it has been a long time since it was actually disabled and its also on another domain.

My user had to type in the more up to date email address and just rely on auto complete to communicate with him.

I don&#8217;t understand what has happened here, this is the first time this has happen after many I have done over the last couple of months, amongst other jobs that have cropped up with this migration.

I asked the user if he had created this address book as I noticed his address next to where it says global address book but he has not ever added anyone.

I'm getting a new computer and I was wondering if there is an easy way to export e-mails and a personal address book from Outlook 97 to the new computer which will have outlook 2000.

I figure the inbox can just be exported as a .pst file (is that right?) But I can't figure out what to do about the address book.

Answer:exporting emails and address books to a network drive

Your Personal Address Book is stored as a PAB file. Check your current settings (Tools/Services/Personal Address Book), to determine where the current file is being saved. If it's being stored on a network drive, you only need to point to that location when you configure your new copy of Outlook. If it is being stored on the C: drive, copy it to a network location you have access to and configure your new copy of Outlook to point to this location.

We often establish our users PAB file on the network just so that it makes it easier down the road to re-establish settings if they get a a different PC.... don't have to move files from one hard drive to another. We also store their PST files on the network for the same reason.

I have an old Dell desktop which is due to be replaced but I need to find some info off it first.

There were 4 user accounts on there and only last week, I changed over ISP. It runs the windows xp 2000 home edition with a service pack 2.

Since the change over, the Dell has been playing up and I have done a system restore twice whilst extracting files etc for the changeover, and just as I want to go in to get my address book, it will no longer let me go back far enough to system restore point where I have all the accounts again. How can I find the individual Outlook Express accounts?

Your help appreciated :)

Howdy!I have multiple workbooks that each have multiple sheets. I would like to capture all of the Row 1 data from each of those sheets on one Master spreadsheet. No computing needed; just don't want to copy/paste 250 times.Many thanks in advance!

Answer:Need Row 1 data from multiple spreadsheets/books to 1 sheet

I can't take credit for the original code, but I did modify it to copy Row 1 of each sheet from each .xlsx file in the referenced folder into Sheet 1 of the workbook in which the code resides.I suggest that you try this in a new workbook so that you don't overwrite anything in a existing workbook in case things go terribly wrong.All of the files you are copying from have to reside in the same folder and you have to change this line to reflect that folder:Const strPath As String = "C:\Documents and Settings\DerbyDad03\Test Folder\"The original code can be found here: CopySameSheetFrmWbs()
Dim wbOpen As Workbook
'Change Path
Const strPath As String = "C:\Documents and Settings\DerbyDad03\Test Folder\"

Dim strExtension As String

'Comment out the 3 lines below to debug
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Application.Calculation = xlCalculationManual
On Error Resume Next

'Change extension if required

'Loop through .xlsx files in folder

I currently maintain 15 websites, for various different DIY products. Each website has its own email address. We have some one who deals with all email enquiries. We are noticing large amounts of spam. It has been suggested that we use a single email address for all 15 websites.

Other than its going to be a nightmare editing all of the websites to 1 email address, what other pros and cons are there for this idea.


Answer:Multiple Email Address' or a single address

not sure how this will reduce the spam necessarily.

No idea what netmask I should use, and if I should give each one a gateway address.

Hoping someone has more information on this than I can find

Environment info:
Windows Small business server 2008
BES express 5.0.1
Syncing company contacts public folder (over 11k contacts)

The issue is that some contacts list the address funny
example address: 110 street name, 10 street name, 0 street name

Its not a huge deal, since we have fixed most issues with this BES server, however any info would be great

Answer:BES multiple address in contacts

There are actually two different address books, and our recommendations would be different depending on the book we're talking about.

If it's the user's address book, then I'd check their mailbox and see if there is any corruption.

If it's the system address book, then I'd nuke it from the database and resync it.

Answer:Multiple IP address DSL account

You may have to assign them statically. Ask your providor if they use DHCP or not. If they do not then ask them for your default gateway, subnet mask, and DNS. They should be able to provide those. Once you get the answer, we will take it from there.

Now that I have ?upgraded? to MS Word 2003 and Works 7 I find that the programme works quite differently and I cannot get MS Word to read the data base. I get a message:-?Office cannot use Works files that contain formulas for mail merge. Remove the formula from this file to use it as a data source.?Questions:-1. What is the formula to which the message relates?

I'm having an intermittent problem with my wireless network. (I'm posting because I haven't seen many cases of 'limited to no connectivity' with multiple computers).
Both my roommate and I are having 'limited to no connectivity' intermittently. Both computers can be connected through the LAN (and comcast said that there was nothing wrong with the modem - for all the help that gives). I had set up the wireless from my computer and had recently upgraded to Windows 7 (maybe 2 weeks ago) and the other computer is still on xp. I tried to reconfigure the wireless through my computer and then through hers, with the same results.
When I tried to do the auto windows troubleshooting it said that the problem it found was an invalid IP address. When my roommate tried to repair (and reconfigure the IP address) separately, she was unable to do so.
I guess my inane question of the day is where is the IP address renewed initially? (the computer, the modem?...)

Like the title sais i have been getting BSOD randomly every few days for the last 2 weeks, there is nothing in particular i have been able to find that triggers this. The BSOD is always caused by Driver ntoskrnl.exe + 14e7co. I recently built this PC about 3 weeks ago as im taking it to University with me.

I've attached a zip file of 2 of my most recent BSOD and the dm log collector file i was specified to do so, thanks for the assistance.

Answer:BSOD Randomly, multiple Error Codes but all from same address

Agreed that all the dumps indicate ntoskrnl but that is not a driver, it's part of the Windows kernel and not the cause of the problem. It just happens to be in control (which it often is) when the problem occurs.

All the dumps indicate some kind of memory corruption. This can be caused by defective RAM or by a faulty driver. You have 16GB of ram so lets check that first and if okay then turn on Driver Verifier and see if that shows anything.

Follow this tutorial: MemTest86+ - Test RAM - Windows 10 Forums

MemTest86+ is a diagnostic tool designed to test Random Access Memory (RAM) for faults. MemTest86+ will verify that:

RAM will accept and keep random patterns of data sent to itThere are no errors when different parts of memory try to interactThere are no conflicts between memory addresses

Memtest86+ runs from bootable media to isolate the RAM from the system, no other components are taken into account during the test.

MemTest86+ needs to run for at least 8 passes to be anywhere near conclusive, anything less will not give a complete analysis of the RAM. It can take 12 to 20 hours to run 8 passes against 16GB of ram so be patient.

If you are asked to run MemTest86+ by a Ten Forums member make sure you run the full 8 passes for conclusive results. If you run less than 8 passes you will be asked to run it again.

I have a filter set up on my Outlook e-mail which does the following:

- Check mail when it arrives
- Move messages to 'EXTERNAL MAIL' folder
- Except where 'Sender' is in 'GLOBAL ADDRESS LIST'.

Great, all my external e-mail is filtered from my inbox. This means that I can focus on my inbox and deal with important stuff before I sift through all the junk in my external mail folder.

But then I get external e-mail that I want to stay in my inbox (eg. From my wife!).

So I have added another exception 'Except if from '[email protected]' or '[email protected]' etc.

What I would really like to do is have exceptions that say:

- Except where 'Sender' is in 'GLOBAL ADDRESS LIST' or 'CONTACTS'.

That way as soon as I add someone to my contacts, their e-mail doesn't get filtered out. I can then see an e-mail and think 'Oh, I don't want that one filtered next time', add the sender to my contacts and job done.

However, it seems taht you can only have ONE 'except if sender is in specified address book' exception.

Does anyone know a way round this?

A friend of mine recently started getting a lot of emails from people on her contact list saying that they look like spam. They asked her if she sent these emails and of course, she didn't. She has changed her password but the problem persists. She has run a number of different scans and that hasn't solved the problem either. Is there anything that can be done?

Answer:A friend's email address is on multiple emails to contacts

If her contact list has been hacked, it can't be undone.  If they have the contact list, changing the password will not change anything.  Sounds like she needs to lock down her phone better.  She needs to be more careful, and check all her privacy settings.  Have her create a new email and let her contacts know.  People don't realize that they are granting the world access to their personal information with these phones.  Google+, Facebook, instagram, Pinterest, etc.... they all access ALL your personal info by default, and makes it simple for others to gain access.

so ive been trying to fix this issue for weeks on end. no luck!

first of all, my router is one of the standard comcast xfinity routers. the nicer ones they provide i believe.

ive never had the greatest connection considering i have my rig on the top floor, but it was never horrible till recently. shows full bars yet doesnt connect at all. i tried virus scans, resetting the router, and just yesterday (since i needed a new one anyways) i dropped 60 bucks on a netgear thumbdrive adapter. im picking up some dudes roku a mile away now that things a beast. but no cigar, problems persist.

i brought the rig downstairs and its sitting next to the router now. it works well besides randomly not working for 10 to 20 minutes a handful of times. im on it atm but it aint gonna fly down here, i need it upstairs.

these problems coincided with a new network my wifi picked up. my neighbor mustve upgraded routers or something. i thought it might be interfering with mine considering theres is xfinity as well and is insecure. someone mentioned i should try changing the ip address. knowing little about that i gave it my best shot and i noticed when i enter ipconfig/release there are large amounts of files that say "media state....... media disconnected". and a large amount of tunnel adapters. help pls!

Answer:Wifi issues, multiple reasons why it may not work possibly IP address

ok i know i messed something up cuz now my ipod doesnt work at all. just saying, it says unable to connect to network. its never said that in all the years ive lived here

Hi there! First post. My question to all you tech-ies out there.
I am currently running 10 computers attached via wired network to a server running xp pro at my business. From home, I have set up remote desktop so that I can log in to my server and operate the software I need to from home, using the server as another workstation.
I am looking at uprgrading a few other computers to XP pro, (yeah) or sadly Vista Business (boo) which will allow connections to those computers too. I know about port forwarding, because I had to with the server that is connecting to the Web by a D-Link router. I want to make my salesmens computers which will have remoted desktop host enabled on them to be available from their offsite computers. I've searched the web, and found a few diff. ideas on this, but would like your opinions on this one that I found. My questions is, can the connections from offsite be performed concurrently.
"Well, you could make it a whole lot easier on yourself and just setup port forwarding on your work router like this:
external port -> internal IP -> local port
3889 -> -> 3889
4889 -> -> 3889
5889 -> -> 3889
In this case, you now have one pass-thru and two redirected ports. This means you don't need to modify anything on each host, only the network configuration changes. Note you can reach each rdp session remotely using your public IP address and one of the external ports. Say your public ... Read more

hi i have a problem with understanding PIM-SM multicast tree. i just cant figgure why there is a (2001:DB8:1111:1111::1, FF08:1111) tree with shared tree (*,FF08::1111) on R3 router.
i have been spending a lot of time on that problem and just cant figgure that out. one more important thing is that R3 does not process each multicast packet from FF08::1111 twice.
here are pictures with relevant information
Please help

Answer:IPv6 Multicast - multiple join on one Multicast address

just to be clear - i understand why is R3 member of shared tree - but i have no idea why is also member of source-specific tree.

Thanks for anybodys time



Answer:Live mail Multiple e-mail address sending

The use of captchas has, unfortunately, grown recently. I have the same problem sending emails from my yahoo address at times. The only suggestion I can make is to use gmail, which at present doesn't seem to be using them on outgoing mail.

Does anyone know why local IP addresses listed in my packet log would be different than my local IP address given me by my ISP?

In my log I noticed that suddenly I have 5 different local IP addresses apart from my IP.

I am Local Address and I am Local Host but also listed are different IP's as Local Address and Local Host.

The ones showing up as local address and local host with me are

All of these on the list sent 1 or more UDP packets to my ISP.

All of my packets under my IP address are TCP.

So how can they and I both be Local Address and Local Host and using different IP addresses?

Question: Books on XP

I am just wondering if their are any books that explain windows xp in high detail. For example explaining the architectural design of it, and what each file is for?

Answer:Books on XP

I think I saw a book like that at a library, but don't remember the name. They are usually near 005 Dewey Decimal. I think they can also be shelved in another section also, beside reference. You could go there and look for XP in the title. They are probably starting to get rid of them now that Microsoft stopped supporting it, though. That's what happened to several of my favorite computer books there. I found alternate material on the Internet, though. I did a quick google and found, which talks about the file system. is a table of hidden system files.

Question: One For The Books

This one may win the "most insane Vista issue " yet award. I have an HP laptop running Vista Home Premium and, other than being a bit slow to start, performs everything else just fine. I am currently taking on on-line class (I spend a lot of time on the road and need portable capability-hence the laptop), and it requires a CD that I received from Ivy Software. After placing the CD in the drive, I immediately receive an "Authorware Runtime has stopped working." Vista of course checks for a solution and finds none. Now here's the cool part: I place said CD in my work computer (Windows XP SP2) and it works fine. Must be the laptop or Vista you say, yep, me too.

Here's what I tried (after talking to Ivy tech. spt for an hour who had never heard of this before): disable all AV/Spyware/Malware/Defender etc. programs-no change
Disable UAC-no change
Disable DEP-no change
Go into properties of the Start program and change Compatibility tab to other OS (5 others to be exact)-no change
Scan for virsues with 4 different scanners-no problems but, no change
Scan for SW/MW-none, no change
Run HijackThis-no issues, no BHOs of note, no other conflicts
Run other CDs-fine
Download the newest versions of Macromedia (Authorware is written in Flash)-no change
Reboot-no change
Copy all the files to a new folder and then try to run-no change

So, with the exception of installing XP, either on a separate partition or in virtual mode, I am at my wit's end. Any help would b... Read more
