    Yes. All addresses, contact info, etc are handled by the Address Book application, not just Mail. (Enter them once, they're available to all applications that way.)

    If you open Address Book, and look under the File menu, you'll see "Import", and then a submenu with three selections, vCards, LDIF, and Text.

    Go into Outlook Express, and export your addresses as one of those three, move the file over, and then import it into Address Book. Your addresses will then be available within Mail. (And Safari, and any other application.)
