How can I export my contact lists in Yahoo! and Hotmail accounts to Outlook 2007? If you have done that before, was it easy and %100 percent successful (i.e. no missing or duplicate entries)?
It doesn't specifically talk about Outlook, but th option is clearly shown in a screenshot.
If you do not have a Hotmail Plus subscription, which is required for this export process, you can export your Windows Live Hotmail contacts to a CSV file, from which in turn most email programs and services should be able to import your address book.
A much easyer way is to use a hosted service like MemoToo and you can check out how I set it up on my blog.
If you go to http://memotoo.com and setup an account you can have your contacts synced with tons of services including:
- Google Contacts
- Google Calander
- Facebook (One way)
- LinkedIn (One way)
- Windows Live Contacts
- Yahoo Contacts
- Windows Mobile
- Vodafone 360 (this is a realy crap service though)
- And tones more
Its also ver cheap and you only need to pay £12 per year if you have more than 50 contacts. I have 2000+ and it work just fine.
I did have a couple of hours of De-duping to do afterwords with so many services, but once you have sone that once all is good. Most dups can be deleted, but if you have a contact on Facebook and LinkedIn it is better to merge them. the service than knows to keep one for both serives.
