    Question [SOLVED] How to import MS outlook contact to Zimbra email box

    I have an old email server runing Postfix/IMAP4 under Fedora Core 4 and all users use Microsoft outlook to send/receive email, and they saved all their contacts in their local machine, not in email server.
    Now I installed new email server runing Zimbra under Ubuntu AMD-64. I have run imapsync to sync all emails into zimbra email server. I'm able to see all emails in Zimbra webmail box.

    The question I have is:
    How can i import my outlook contact lists saved in my local machine to Zimbra webmail box?

    I know Zimbra webmail box can import .csv file. But Microsoft outlook doesn't export contacts to .csv file. Any solution?

    Appreciate the help in advance!

    Outlook and Outlook Express can both export their contacts as a .csv file, check here: outlook express export .csv - Yahoo! Search Results You will, however, need the list in a particular format to import it into zimbra, check the article here: Import and Export of Contacts - Zimbra :: Wiki

    Thanks a lot for the information! I'll try that and post the result then.

    In addition to it, I see an stange thing on my zimbra email "outbox" folder. Today when I open my zimbra webmail box, I see my "outbox" folder shown up as"Outbox{e44e1ecd-b576-48aa-aee1-05b482582a77}. Is something wrong that cause this to happen?

    Appreciation your help in advance!

    If you're running the NE version, you can use the Outlook connector to transfer contacts to Zimbra.

    I saw a post where you said you were installing the NE, although you may want to update your profile with the version you're running.

    Thank you all for the information and help. I tried exporting contacts following the instruction showed by the link: outlook express export .csv - Yahoo! Search Results . It works perfectly. All my contacts were imported into Zimbra email box without problem!
