Outlook Express >> Trying to import a group into an OE 5.06 addressbook

by Duan Stokes » Thu, 14 Apr 2005 22:02:11 GMT

I've exported groups from OE on a PC - via a workaround - into a text file.

I'm trying to add them as a group to OE 5.06 on a mac and can't get it to

In the text file they're in this form

FirstName LastName < XXXX@XXXXX.COM >; FirstName LastName < XXXX@XXXXX.COM >;
FirstName LastName < XXXX@XXXXX.COM >; [and so on]

Can anyone tell me how to get them in as a group?

2. Can OE 5.06 [Mac] be VBscripted?

I've searched around for information about disabling VB script in 
Outlook Express for Mac -- and found nothing.  Just some references to 
"VB is not supported in OE on Mac".

Can this be?  And more importantly...

If this is true, does this mean that Macs using OE can NOT spread virii?

4. OE 5.06 Locks Up... HELP

I can't take it any more... Every time I open OE,  after viewing 2 or
3 emails, my system locks up... hangs... i wait and wait... nothing. 
I have waited over 30 minutes just to see if it was trying to do
something, but nothing.  The mouse still moves, but i can not click on
anything, nor go back to the desktop... it just hangs.  when i do a
force quit, it asks "are you sure..." and when i click YES, it just
locks there... won't restart... the YES box is shaded so i know i
clicked on it, and if i force quit again, i can click on YES again,
but still it won't actually do anything.  So i am forced to do a hard
restart by pressing the button on the G4.  When i go back into OE, it
lets me look at 2 or 3 emails and then does it again.  Are there any
viruses going around that effect the Mac's Outlook Express?  I have
rebuilt and compacted the database.. i have deleted most all the
emails... i have thrown away the preferences... i have re-downloaded 
and reinstalled OE... still the same problem.... oddly, i have noticed
that if I rebuild and compress the database, it seems to work a little
longer (like letting me look at 10-20 emails) before it locks up... 
when i restart, it's back to 2 or 3 before it hangs.

anyone?  anyone?  i got so fed up with it, i went and installed
Netscape Mail, BUT alas, it won't let me import my mail from Outlook. 
Ho Hum...

can any one shed some light??

6. OE 5.06 Download?


I'm not very familiar with Macs, so please be kind. I have a client with 
OE 5.01 on his Mac and he needs to upgrade to a version that supports 
Server Authentication.

At the Microsoft web site, however, the link to OE goes nowhere, but 
there is another link to an app called Entourage. Has Entourage replaced 
OE for the Mac? If so, is it still possible to get the last release of 
OE to minimize the adjustment for this client? And where?

8. 5.05 & 5.06


When I type a "T", for example, into the New Message To box, Outlook 5.0.5
crashes. This even happens when I'm adding a CC address.

I downloaded 5.0.6 but I can't open it since even clicking on the icon
automatically opens 5.0.5. and I can't delete the program since I have no
idea how to transfer my Address Book, and I've got tons of mail inside the
In Box.

Any help much appreciated.
