I have the same problem as markwalker and I think you hold the key to resolve it. But, I've been running into all kinds of problem trying to follow your instructions. Here's what I do and what happens:

1. in Hotmail/Address Books I then go File/Save As/ and here I have a choice of 3 formats: HTML, Text Only, or All files. If I choose Text only, I get no bytes transferred. So, I have tried the other two, saving into Word, opening the HTML file and then resaving as a Text file.

2. Then in Outlook Express, I go File/import/other address books I then browse to the text file I saved and when I hit "next" I get an empty box headed "Map the fields you wish to import" and where it allows me to change the map, when I try that the computer locks up.

So -- where have I gone wrong?

Really need your help.
