I have recently statred using a machine with Windows XP service pack 2. This
also has Office installed.
I have set up a number of 'users' - one one of these users I am using
Outlook Express with a number of identities. I moved the folders and address
book from my old machine sucessfully.
Unfortunately I have a need to use Outlook with one application. Since this
has been used the address book and contacts on Outlook Express has been
'hijacked'. All the support entries on this site clearly state that Outlook
Express uses a .wab file in applicationdata/addressbook. The content of this
file is correct but it is obvious that this is not the file being used by OE.
OE now has one address book instead of a subset for each identity. Some of
the identities have contact whilst others do not.
A number of questions then:-
(1) Has Outlook 'hijacked' my address book?
(2) How do I get OE to use the correct one?
(3) Is it possible to prevent Outlook from Hijacking it again?
(4) Why is this not documented in any of the microsoft knowledge entries?
Any help appreciated.
