Hi, I'm using LDAP to acess data from Exchange only data from users, cause I can't share my contacts from Outlook and Outlook Express. I need to share the contacts from Outlook and Outlook Express and manage them from the Exchange server, cause I need to export them to my database from Exchange. The problem is simple, I've tried many ways to export contacts from Outlook to Exchange, but I don't got it. How can I export my contacts from Outlook to Exchange and manage them from Exchange? I'm using Windows2000 and Exchange2000.

Thanx.

Simple, move your contacts to public folders. Then on the outlook bar remove the current contact and then drag your contact back to the outlook bar. Give permissions and you are done. Or you can just rename the one on the outlook bar to contact old..

I've do it and files "contact name.eml"  were created in the Plubic Folder, but in this files there's no data about the contact, like that typed in Outlook to create or edit the contact. What I really need is get access to the data from users and contacts throught LDAP. I just get data from users. Do you know how to use the syntax's search used in LDAP, or some websites about it?

Thanx.

thanx, but I'm not looking for a software, I'm developing a tool for a software that import the users' and your contacts' data from Exchange.

setup an exchange mailbox, add it to your Outlook client.  Export the contacts you want from the .pst they are in, and import them into the mailbox.  If you need instructions on the import and export let me know.

Thanx wordartist, it's worked. The contacts imported to Exchange can be viewed by browsing the folders like "contact's name.eml", do you know where the contacts' data are stored, and if they can be accessed by LDAP?

Thanx.

I am not sure if they can be access by LDAP but the should be stored in the mailbox you created in your Exchange store.  You can use Exchange System Manager to see how many, but not actually access the data.  It sounds like in your original post you have already extracted data with LDAP already.
