    Hi, my dads on Windows 98. He's about to install Norton AntiVirus/Firewall and its telling him he needs to upgrade IE to 5.01 or higher. Thing is, last time we went through Windows Update it deleted all his Address Book... so how do you backup all of the Inbox and Address Book? I can't find an obvious answer.

  3. Did you try File -> Export -> Address Book/Inbox? I dont know if it works since I never tried it.

    for the adressbook part, you can also search for *.wab (be sure to also search hidden/system files)
