    What do you mean by "convert"?

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

    Re: How to convert email address from window mail to outlook expre

    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].
