5.5. How to Transfer Contacts?

Transfer Outlook / Exchange Contacts

If you want to transfer contacts from one mailbox (user) to another, please follow the instructions below:

You will be able to access and export contacts from inside of outlook.  I've included instructions on how to export the contacts from outlook to a .csv file and then how to import them.

 

1.            In Outlook, on the File menu, click Import and Export.

2.            Click Export to a file, and then click Next.

3.            Click Comma Separated Values (Windows), and then click Next.

4.            In the folder list, click the Contacts folder, and then click Next.

5.            Browse to the folder where you want to save the contacts as a .csv file.

6.            Type a name for the exported file, and then click OK.

7.            Click Next.

8.            Click Finish.

 

That gives you a comma separate list of your Outlook Contacts. Transfer that to your new computer, then you can import them into your new version of Outlook with the following steps:

 

1.            On the File menu, click Import and Export.

2.            Click Import from another program or file, and then click Next.

3.            In the list, click Comma Separated Values (Windows), and then click Next.

4.            Click Browse, locate your file, and then click Next.

5.            Click your Contacts folder or another folder that contains contacts, and then click Next.

6.            In the list, click the file that contains your address list, and then click Map Custom Fields.
