Creating a contact group from text file



  • 1. OE address book - Error in Importer DLL?
    I am using Windows XP and attempting to use Outlook Express 6. I am trying, without much success, to import my Netscape 7.1 address book into OE6. I saved my Netscape address book as an LDIF file, opened OE6, clicked on "import-other address book-LDIF" and selected my saved Netscape address book to import. I receive the message "application error in importer DLL C:\Program Files\Outlook Express\wabimp.dll", and nothing is imported. What am I doing wrong, or do I need to reinstall OE6? How would I reinstall OE6 if I have to? Thank you. K.C.

    Hello list, I have OL2003 and all my rules work fine except when when looking in the body of a HTML file. I'm trying to filter spam. It appears that when OL2003 downloads a HTML file, it ignores the rules I created. The above rule works fine on plain text messages. What am I doing wrong? Thanks!

You need to make sure it is in the correct order, however, you can add
commas between fields and import it as comma deliminated file.  It is one of
the options for importing.

Do you want 10 new contacts or a distribution list?

You can use File, Import to make 10 new contacts or

1.Import XLS file into newly created Group in the Contacts folder

I am trying but am not having much luck. First with the address book
open and seeing my contacts list, I went to add new entry and selected
new Dist List. So now I see in BOLD the name of the new dist list.

Now I have in Excel as an xls file a list of 500 names and the columns
are Last Name, First Name, middle initial,  email address.

I want to bring this list into that new group I created. I tried and
tried but keep hitting brick walls. Can anyone help???

3.Email to Outlook 2007 contact group is always in Rich-Text

I have a customer who just upgraded to Outlook 2007 running under Vista. She 
was previously using Outlook 2003 on XP.

Her default email composing format is set to HTML in Tools, Options, Mail 

She has a contact group with 37 email addresses in the group.

When she composes a new message to the group, it is being sent in RICH TEXT 
format, making attachments inoperable for recipients not using Outlook. 
During message composition, the FORMAT menu shows HTML is selected. Yet the 
message attachment is being sent as winmail.dat. If she manually selects 
PLAIN TEXT on the composition FORMAT menu, the message goes out as Plain 
text and all recipients can decode the attachment. If she composes an email 
to a single recipient from the group, the message goes out properly 
formatted as HTML, with the attachment in-tact (non-winmail.dat).

It appears this behavior is different than OL2003. She never had this issue 
before. I have searched and can find no explanation as to why OL2007 is not 
honoring the default message composition format, nor is it honoring the 
message format (HTML) displayed during composition on the FORMAT menu.

I am not overly familiar with OL2007. But there does not appear to be a 
"group-specific" message format setting.

Is it possible that there are 1 or more recipients in the group whose 
individual address book message format settings are set to RICH TEXT? If so, 
why does PLAIN TEXT override any individual setting but selecting HTML does 
not override it? She must be able to send HTML emails with attachments to 
the contact group.

Hopefully I have explained the situation correctly. If anyone can she any 
light, it would be appreciated.

Yes, just import the CSV file, and all those contacts will go into the
general contacts area (not in a group).  Then just create your new group and
drag them all in there.
