I've been using Hotmail and have built up a list of contacts. I've now setup Outlook 2002 as the front-end client and want to download my contacts from Hotmail. However, Hotmail doesn't appear to have an export facility for contacts. I hope there's a way to do this as I've got around 200 entries in my Hotmail contacts.
Bit tedious,but as there is an import but no export button,go to your list of contacts(In Hotmail)Right-Click it and select source from the options,it will open in Notepad(the HTML of the page)Scroll down and you will see lines of html like
Gandalf, 'fraid this must only work in Outlook Express. In Outlook 2000, there isn't a Synchronize option anywhere. Tools....Address Book just puts me into the address book, which is of course empty as I want to populate it from Hotmail contacts.
Or could you print them open notepad copy and paste the list in there then save it as a text cvs file? then import them that way,dont know if it would work in 2002 i have done it in OE6 with cvs file but not from hotmail.And i expoted the list from OE6 as a backup.
Now I get it. There's a 'synchronize' button when you look at the Hotmail list of contacts, and this takes you to the MSN8 signup page. They want me to upgrade for £4.99 a month before it will let me synchronize the contacts list offline. Seems a bit of a cheek?
