    I keep saying help with mail importing so here is the fix.. It's a simple
    bug with Vista Windows Mail that is the problem.. Not somethign your doing

    After you select the directory where the storage path is look at what the
    path shows for the import.. it will be wrong.. it will read as an example...

    \local settings\Application Data\Identities\xxxxx\Microsoft\Outlook
    Express\Outlook Express

    note the last folder is duplicated.. quite the bug aye..

    I found if I than clicked on browse again to select the path and go back and
    select the folder above it that the duplicate folder will disappear and the
    path will be correct. It will now import the files.

    I'm trying to use Outlook 2000 with Vista Home Premium, but keep getting a
    problem re: cannot open Windows Address book... WAB DLL not found. Perhaps
    it's the Outlook 2000 compatibility problem others have been experiencing?

    Due to WAB DLL problem, I'm being forced to use Windows Mail (WM). WM will
    import Outlook 2000 Account ok. But falls over when I go
    File/Import/Messages/MS Outlook. Just doesn't get any further than browse folder.

    Anyone beeen able to import messages into WM from Oulook 2000 OR even
    better, know how to 'fix' Outlook 2000 WAB file problem? I'd at least like
    all my mail on one system!
