You lose all Internet Headers for one. Export the Address Book to a Comma
Seperated Values (CSV) file from Outlook Express then import that file into
Outlook using File | Import... | Import from another Program or File | Comma
Seperated Values file | and point to the one you made above.

The import should not affect any data attributes, Susan. (I am assuming
you're importing into OL from OE running on the same machine.)

OE's contacts are in the (Windows) Address Book. Address Book can be
configured to share its contacts with OL's Contacts.
