Download v5.06. Open it and go to Help: Outlook Express Help. There you will find a rather involved method of exporting materials from your old version to the desktop, and then importing them into v5.06.
Good luck.

It's all in one file, the "Database" file inside of the Identities folder in the documents folder. You can delete the application and the prefs and this won't touch your email or addresses.
i look in your general direction
