You have two choices of how to do it: 1. Install Outlook, preferably
version 2003 or later, under Vista. Versions 2000 and 2003 will also
run under Vista, but with some problems. Windows Mail has to have
Outlook installed on the same machine to be able to import .pst files
directly from Outlook. 2. Import the .pst file into Outlook Express
on your old computer which has both Outlook and Outlook Express.
Then find the .wab file Outlook Express will produce and copy it to
a directory on the hard drive of your new computer. Start Windows
Mail, then click Tools and then Windows Contacts. Click Import,
then Windows Address Book File (Outlook Express contacts), then
Import, then find the .wab file and click on it. Click on Close, then
close the Contacts window.
