Ganz einfach! Apr 11, 2006


es geht ganz einfach: Wähle die Option "Exportieren" unter "Datei", und dort wiederum "Adressbuch". Danach kannst du wählen, in welchem Format du es gerne hättest (z.B. als Textdatei mit Kommas als Trennzeichen).

Viel Vergnügen mit deinem neuen PC!

wab-Datei speichern Apr 11, 2006

wenn ich mich richtig erinnere, werden die Adressen in einer wab-Datei gespeichert.

Hier ein Auszug aus einer älteren Proz-Mail:
-=< 3. Back-Up: MS Outlook Express >=-

Back-up. That is a habit that definitely worths the time and effort. Let's see how we can do it in OE.

First, we need to back up our messages, right? OK, go Tools>Options>Maintenance and click on the 'store folder' button you'll find there. A window appears that informs you where your email messages are stored.
Copy that path to your windows clipboard by selecting it all and pressing Ctrl+C.
Open Windows Explorer (Windows button + E), place your pointer in the address bar, click Ctrl+V (paste) and then press the Go button. The folder where your messages are stored should open.
Select all the icons that appear and copy them to a safe back-up location (removable drive, CD-ROM, intranet, anything outside your hard disk). If you just back-up some of them selectively you may not be able to restore them, so better back them all up.

Second, it's our contacts' email addresses. We do need them too, right? That's easy. In your Windows taskbar select Start>Run, type "wab" (without the quotes) and press enter. The Windows Address Book appears.
Go File>Export>Address Book (WAB). A window appears asking you for the desired filename and back-up location.
Type a name, select a location outside your hard disk and click on Save.

What else would be worth backing up? Our email accounts. No problem: Just Go Tools>Accounts. In the Mail tab, select one by one all the accounts that appear there and click on the Export button. Type a filename and back-up location and click on Save.
Done! You can do the same in the other tabs too (eg. "News") if you wish.

1. Restore: Outlook Express

In the previous issue, we took back up copies of the most popular e-mail client

today. The best backup copy though is absolutely useless if you cannot restore it.

Okay, suppose you just bought this brand new, super fast PC and you want to move your

entire email system there from the old PC archives you just backed up. (If you just

need to practice before doing the real thing, you could just create a new identity

from within the menu File>Identities>Add New Identity. The rest of the procedure is

exactly the same.) This can be done in 4 steps:
A.Email accounts, B.Contacts, C.Messages and D.Mail filters.

Launch Outlook Express.
Bypass all the initial setup wizards that pop up by consecutively clicking on NO's

and CANCEL's.
Go Tools>Accounts and select the Mail tab.
Click on the Import button.
Locate the .iaf file(s) you saved during the backup procedure and double-click on it.
Click OK to exit.
Your account settings were imported successfully! This means that you won't have to

re-configure your server settings, user ID, password, preferences etc. from scratch.

Piece of cake! Just go File>Import>Address Book, then through the window that appears

locate and double-click on the .wab file you had saved during the backup procedure.

Done! All your contacts are back!

That can be tricky, so do it carefully.
Go Tools>Options, select the Maintenance tab and click on the Store Folder button.
A small window will pop up to inform you where the new email messages will be stored.

Let's change this directory to something easier to remember and manage.
Click on the Change button.
From the window that appears, select a directory in your system. In my own PC, this

directory is located at /My Documents/My Mail/2002/, but feel free to put yours

wherever you see fit.
NOTE: make sure the new directory exists before clicking on the Change button.
Click on OK. You will be notified that changes will take effect after you shut down

and restart OE. OK, let's do it now.
After you have restarted OE for the changes to take effect, shut it down again to be

able to fiddle with its mail folders.
Locate the new directory you created in the previous step. In there you will see a

few files automatically generated by OE. The .dbx ones are actually your mail folders

and they're currently completely empty. But you don't really care about them, all you

need to do is restore your own mail folders, so locate the bunch of .dbx etc. files

you had saved during the back up procedure.
Select them all (including the .log etc. files that were in the original mail

directory) and hit CTRL+C (copy).
Switch to the new mail directory and hit CTRL+V (paste).
You will be asked if you want to replace the existing files. Click on YES. (What

you're actually replacing is the automatically generated, empty mail folders with

your own, full mail folders).
This may take a few moments, depending on how powerful your system is and how large

your mail folders were, so be patient.
When this is done, you may launch OE again.
Well, what do you know? All your mail is back, and it appears exactly as it did in

your old PC! Tedious but effective procedure, isn't it?
