hi

i need to reinstall exchange 2003, for reasons i won't go into....i have about 600 "Contacts" (external contacts), that i would like to export before i uninstall and then import after i reinstall rather than lose them all and have to manually retype them all in.

is there a quick and easy way to do this please?

you could use the ADMT (active directory migration tool ) to "migrate"  them then.
