Question question about importing contacts to Outlook 2003

Can anyone tell me if it is possible to import my Hotmail contacts to Outlook 2003? I've configured Outlook 2003 to retrieve my emails from Hotmail, but did not see an option in Outlook or Hotmail to transfer my contacts. Thanks in advance.

I don't believe so. Hotmail is a webmail service, so your contacts in it are stored on the database server.

You could try going to Microsoft's website and doing some checking, though. Often that kind of stuff is "hidden" away in dusty corners that few people have visited.

Besides...I wouldn't import -anything- from hotmail into my machine if I could help it. The spam is too hot.

If you use outlook express, you can capture the contacts from Hotmail that way and then import them into outlook 2003. That is the only way I know of...
