Outlook Connector for Domino - Contacts not Syncing

I have the latest Outlook Connector for Domino running with Outlook 2002.  All is working ok, except that from the initial synchronization, my Notes contacts never made it into Outlook.  If I add a new contact in Outlook, it never makes it back to Notes either.  Mail, calendar, to-do, etc. are syncing just fine.  Any suggestions?  Thanks.

Answered my own question:

Notes and Outlook Contact formats are not compatible and are not managed via the Outlook Connector.

Import Lotus Notes addresses into Contacts

Note   The PABImport command can't import distribution lists that can't be resolved.

Open a command prompt.
Change to C:\Program Files\Outlook Connector for Domino.
Type the following command:

PABImport abpath

where abpath is the location of your Lotus Notes Personal Address Book. The default location is C:\Program Files\Lotus\Notes\Data\Names.nsf.

If necessary, do one or more of the following:
Select the user profile that contains your Microsoft Office Outlook Connector for IBM Lotus Domino Contacts folder.

Type your ID file password in the Outlook Password dialog box, and then click OK.

Type your ID file password in the Lotus Notes Enter Password dialog box, and then click OK.

If a message warns you that a program is trying to access your Microsoft Office Outlook e-mail addresses, click Allow access for, accept the default value of 1 minute, and then click Yes.

Note   Large address books might take more than a minute to download. If you are importing a large address book, select a longer access time.

If your Contacts folder contains a contact or group that also exists in your Lotus Notes Personal Address Book, you will be asked whether you want to create a duplicate entry. To create a duplicate entry, click Yes. To keep the entry in your Contacts folder, click No.

When a message indicates that your Lotus Notes names and addresses have been imported, click OK.
Start Outlook and verify that your Contacts folder contains the imported names and addresses.
