How to import OE6 mailinglist into Outlook 2007?

I tried several times to import my OE6 (Windows Mail so Windows Contacts)
mailinglists into Outlook 2007. Result is that all my email addresses are
imported, but the groupnames are converted to an empty contact in Outlooks
contacts.
Is there another way to import all email addresses from OE6/Windows Mail
into Outlook 2007, keeping the mailinglists or convert them to distribution
lists?

Kind Regards,
Jacob

OE and Windows Mail are completely different programs
OL2007 Imports from OE but not directly from Windows Mail
So what are you using?

That's how it works, you get all the contacts, but groups are lost and must
be re-built.

And what about this: http://tinyurl.com/5w7snn
Is that a pssible way to do the job. Haven't tried it yet, but I will.

Otherwise: thanks Microsoft for giving me extra work.... :(

I've been using OE for years, and now I use Windows Mail, what looks very
simular to OE. The thing is that a lot of MS own applications aren't
compatible! So when switching to Office 2007 on a new Vista machine I wanted
to start using Outlook too. Converting mail and addresses works fine, but
only the contact groups got lost and were not converted to DL's. Why not? I
might be different things, but the least what you expect that conversion
will take place on that too. Outlook nor WM reports this lack of conversion.

I will keep on trying/
