No, it opens up an "Import to Window Contacts" window, with choices for what type of file to import, ie: CSV, LDIF or Windows Address Book File (Outlook Express Contacts)

Regardless of which type of file is selected, the iporter doent recognize the the file at all..

Ok, did you export the messages from OE to .eml or it is just the raw .eml files ?
