What do you mean by "convert"?

Your email program does not have any effect on your email address.

In fact, I change a new PC, it's using Outlook express. My old PC was using
Vista.
I cannot move the email address of my friend I built up before. How to
import contact of Vista to OE?

OE - XXX.wab
Vista - contacts file

Sorry, my question misled.

I mean I change a new PC, It's using Outlook express. While my old PC was
using Vista. How can I import the contact of my friend to outlook express. It
seems they are in different format.

Vista - contact
OE - XXX.wab

Open the Contacts in WinMail and Export as a CSV (Comma Separated Values)
file and save it to the Desktop. Copy this to flash or CD and place it on
the Desktop of the XP machine.

Open OE and open the Address Book. File | Import | Other Address Book |
Text File (Comma Separated Values). Click: Import and browse to where you
saved it.

[Note: If you used a CD or DVD, before you import, right click on the file
on the Desktop | Properties, and clear the Read Only attribute].
