    Windows Mail!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Importing the read-only WAB from an XP machine, off of an optical
    disc, makes the C:\users\franky\contacts folder read-only.

    SHOULD FIX: right-clicking and unselecting 'read only' and then
    clicking apply
    DOESN'T FIX: right-clicking and unselecting 'read only' and then
    clicking apply

    (the read only flag remains. this has two side-effects: can't edit or
    add contacts, also can't use the 'to' button on windows mail in order
    to choose a contact to e-mail. we had to download windows live mail
    and install that in order to send messages.

    Please advise! I see that contacts are now an xml schema rather than
    the old way. how does i fix?

  2. "Read Only" means nothing on the folder level. It only applies to
    individual files.
