As part of my migration process to Arch Linux, I needed to transfer my contacts, stored in a deep tree of nested folders, into a much more widespread category structure. In this way I'd able to store them in Google Contacts or in Thunderbird equipped with a category add-on (e.g. MoreFunctionsForAddressBook).

I created the Outlook VBA class LookOut.

It is a collection of procedures for contact management. The main tasks are transforming contact folders into contact categories, exporting contacts as vCards including contact categories, combining of contacts into a single vCard file as per Google format, dot-style nesting of categories (inspired by Google labels), and some some duplicate management.

Have a LookOut here and feel free to contribute.

One recommendation - change the name. In the outlook world, I think there are at least 2 usages of 'lookout'. Since you already have the github site, I'd call it Lookout Contact Tools or something like that.

Thanks for pointing out.

It is now LookOut Contact Freedom, and I put a disclaimer as not relating to Mike Belshe Outlook search add-in.
