I found a clever hack based on one of the idiosyncracies of Gmail contacts. In Gmail addresses, the dot character is insignificant. Therefore firstname.lastname@example.org is equivalent to email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com etc. Now suppose you want to block Mr Orwell, then this is what you need to do: Delete his contact. ...

I tried several things and found some things out.
You can't change it by yourself.
The most contacted address is picked when there are multiple ones.
When you haven't contacted a person before, the most recently added address is picked.
The order in which the addresses are listed up in the contact details is unimportant.
It's sad that there is now way of ...
The easiest way to accomplish this would be to use Conxt.
All you have to do is start your free account and auto-import from gmail (and other platforms). Most of the duplicates will be auto-merged during this import process. No data is lost during this. Then, starting at that point, simply check the checkbox next to the ones you wish to delete and click ...
You should have a look at Lifehacker full guide to clean up Gmail Contacts.
Some topics they cover that could help you:
clean up duplicates
export and import csv
I'd say that for 200 contacts, the easiest way is to:
export to CSV
keep the contacts you want (delete the unwanted rows)
delete all your gmail contacts
import the clean and fresh CSV to Google ...
You can import contacts as a .csv file following the instructions here;

(Partially answering my own question)
You provide us the phone numbers in your mobile address book on a regular basis, including those of both the users of our Services and your other contacts. You confirm you are authorized to provide us such numbers.

I have struggled with this problem for the better part of this afternoon. There are several iterations of this question posted in the support forums, and so far I have not seen a single satisfactory answer. But I stumbled upon a solution. Others were on the threshold of the solution by suggesting that the individual contacts you want removed be deleted ...
No, there isn't. I have seen several people post such a proposal as a Google+ message, however. I hope that Google is considering it.
There is at least one guy who is faking it by creating multiple, specially-named circles. For instance, he has a "Friends: Online" circle and a "Friends: All" circle. Anyone he drops into "Friends: Online" he also drops into "...
From the web-based version you can using the export functionality. Select you contacts in the contacts browser, select More->Export and select vCard format for your selected contacts. You can then download the file and attach it to your email.
Spam filters generally work against the content of the message.
In fact, given that spammers like to forge their From: headers and that, historically, there was no way to automatically validate the message's origin, most spam filters I'm familiar with don't really care about the From: address.
Despite being a GMail user myself, I'm not 100% sure about ...
If you are the admin of the Google Apps account you could go to Organizations & users and from More actions: Download as CSV.
Once you've done that then you can easily modify the file as Google wants it and then import them as usual.
I think it all depends on your interlocutors:
If they are a minimum tech-savvy I would just send the vcard as they should know they can open it with any text editor if they need to.
If they are not tech-savvy, I would insert the contact data to the email body and maybe add the vcard saying the contact information are attached as well.
In case you're not ...
According to info from LinkedIn's Help Center: "It's not possible to remove a connection from a mobile device."

I can't find a way to just see the people from your domain, but it's possible you could search for them using the domain or company name?
Once you've managed to get them all selected (which might be tedious, but is the only hard part) you can then click More Actions -> Export and choose to export the selected contacts as a CSV.
In the other account, just ...

Type the person’s name in chat (where you would have entered their name to start) (do not press enter/return)
In the window that appears next to their auto filled name, Uncheck "show in chat list"
Enjoy not seeing that person’s name
It's not the most efficient way, but you get results.
Export your Gmail contacts into a .csv
Extract the names from the .csv (with Google Docs)
Create a massive filter with all the names
from: -(name1 OR name2 OR name3)
This last step will probably be best done with a string/file manipulation macro/script. If you'd like to try it, I can write one in ...

From a Microsoft representative:
"With the current design of Hotmail, the option you're referring to is not yet available. I will forward the suggestion over to our product team as consideration for a future release."
Unfortunately, that was over a year ago. It doesn't look like the feature is coming anytime soon.
Specifically as to your question, there is no way to make LinkedIn 'forget' the data. When you agree to sync your email connections, LinkedIn then sends one email to every address in your email contacts (even if you once sent an email asking for a refund on something - the system has no way of knowing who is and who is not important to you). After this first ...

If you have a reasonably up-to-date version of Office, the easiest method is to use Excel with PowerQuery.
PowerQuery has a source for Office 365 and Exchange Online. Connect up to the Mail entry and you can access all the From, To, CC and BCC entries. Takes a bit of wrangling but it is all point and click. No programming.
Update: It seems that the answer is a strong NO. You can't prevent it.
