I recently started using outlook web access 2003, and I want to transfer several hundred contacts that are stored in outlook 2007 personal contacts. I have outlook 2007 connected to the exchange, and I've been advised there's a way to export the contacts onto the exchange server. I'm a novice, and would appreciate step by step directions.




This is a great forum, and I'm sure the answer to my question is in a thread. I wasn't able to locate the search feature, on this forum...




Thanks in advance.

Not sure what you mean by "stored in Outlook 2007 personal contacts." If

you're connected to Exchange, your Contacts are stored in your Exchange

mailbox. As such, they are already on the Exchange server not in a local

data file.

Clarify what you want to do and what OWA has to do with it. OWA is an

Exchange application so questions about it belong in an Exchange group.

I have been using Outlook 2007 for several years on my desktop using IMAP. I just switched to an exchange server and started using the OWA 2003. I also reconfigured my Outlook 2007 desktop from IMAP to exchange. When I send an email from Outlook 2007, I'm able to look up my contacts that are stored on my desktop. When I am using OWA 2003, I only have access to the global contacts, but my personal contacts are not on the exchange. I could input each contact manually into the exchange, but I was hoping there was a way to transfer all the contacts in bulk from Outlook 2007 to OWA 2003. In hindsight I realize that I should have posted on exchange forum. Thanks.

OWA has no access to anything on your PC. It is strictly mailbox access.

Access your Exchange mailbox with the real Outlook client and copy the

contents of your personal Contacts folder to the Contacts folder in the

mailbox if you want to see them in OWA.
