How to: Import OE address book into Outlook
This procedure assumes you have already installed Outlook on your PC and have set up your e-mail account.
1.Choose File, Import and Export…
2.You will see a dialog box with several options,  select the last option in the list: "Import Internet Mail and Addresses"
Click Next
Select Outlook Express as the source format
Click Next
In this case, since there is no existing data, it doesn't matter which option you select. But, if you had already added one or more contacts to your Outlook Contacts list, you should make a selection appropriate to how you prefer duplicate items get handled.
Click Finish
A file explorer dialog will open. Navigate to where your backup of the .wab file is located and choose Open and your address book will be imported into Outlook.
