As a result of the change, my Outlook Express was not able to properly import my addressbook. It scrambled it and made it impossible to use. I tried re-importing my addressbook over and over, only to be unsuccessful. Finally, I decided to ditch Outlook Express and instead try Microsoft Outlook. This client allowed me to import all of my addresses without any problems at all. However, I have been very disappointed in Microsoft Outlook. I find it very slow -- and it also seems to slow my PC down considerably. I find it unreliable and not user friendly. It has been very frustrating to say the least because I rely on my addressbook for a lot of daily use.
Does anyone have any recommendations for me? It looks like I will need to keep my Japanese OS to avoid other problems. I would prefer to use an e-mail client rather than not. My main e-mail accounts are Yahoo.com and Gmail.com. Thanks kindly!
