Microsoft Address Book – Missing Address Book on Windows 7?

Some users new to Microsoft Windows 7 have noticed that Outlook Express is missing. They might also be having difficulties finding their old Microsoft address book on their new Windows 7 system, after transferring their data. Microsoft replaced Outlook Express with Windows Live Mail and your computer may have come preinstalled with Windows Live Mail, depending on your operating system distribution.

If you cannot find Windows Live Mail you can download and install windows livemail.

You can then import your old Outlook Address Book into Windows Live Mail Address Book by following:

  1. Open Windows Live Mail, then in a lower left corner of that window click on “Contacts”.
  2. Click a “File” menu, select “Import” then click a type of address book that you want to import. If prompted, browse to and choose that file that contains a contact information that you want to import, and then click “Open”.

A short description of Windows Live Mail, tutorial on how to export contacts, and importing mail and address book is available.
