Outlook Express contacts

By cliff680 ·
My old P2 350 finally crashed and I replaced it. I put the old drive in the new PC as a slave to get my data off of it. The only thing I can't get is the Outlook Express contacts, I can get the inbox, sent items....blah blah blah, does anyone know how to retrieve the contacts, there doesn't appear to be a place to get it from. If I could boot the drive up I could go into OE and export them , but I can't do that.
Thanks in advance for your help.
