Problem with importing address list into Outlook express

  1. I am trying to import address list from Netscape communicator to Outliook
    express 6.0. The name of file in Netscape is abook.mab. When I click on
    import addresses in Outlook express, it offers me option either from
    Netscape v.2 and v3 or Communicator v.4. If I select Communicator, it
    is trying to find a file with extension nab, which I do not have.

    If try Netscape v.2 and v.3, it is looking for extension htm. Can any one
    help me figure out how to solve this problem. Do you think that Microsoft
    may have made a mistake and it should really be looking for a file with
    extension mab?

    Many thanks for the help.

    In Netscape, select to EXPORT addresses in copy-separated-values (.csv)
    In Outlook IMPORT in CSV format from that file.

    Dear Real black stuff,

    Many thanks for your suggestion. I had removed Netscape from my
    computer, but I will go ahead and re-install it and then go thru the process
    again.

    Best regards,
