If someone can help me out, I'm having difficulty finding some of my contacts after I did a contact list export. I've never had this happen before, but it seems as though some email addresses have been converted back to an old pst file or something as they are very old contacts that I had changed over a year ago. Anyway, I'm missing some, and even if I open up the latest exported pst file, the addresses are still missing or very old.

Anyone?

You are in a bad way. :)

It really sounds like you are not using the current pst file for your exports. Also, you don't need to export when you switch from imap to pop - you can keep the old pop pst file in your profile and just delete the pop account from File, Account Settings, Email Account. IMAP needs a local pst for calendar and contacts - it might as well be the one you used before.
