Exporting GAL to Outlook 2003

Hi all,

I’ve been working on a problem regarding exporting the addresses from exchange 2003 GAL and importing it onto Outlook 2003 following instruction in Microsoft KB article:

After I do the export and then import them in to outlook that is running POP3 email and have no access to exchange; all contacts will loose the email addresses.

I think there is a way to make the exported contacts work on any computer without having to contact exchange servers or AD.

To recap:
I need to go to a computer is running exchange email address, and then follow the instructions in the mentioned KB article.
Then I will copy the PST file to a computer that has only POP3 email address and is in a different organization and import the PST to the contacts on that outlook and be able to use them.

Can any expert help me out please?

Thanks in advance

all went fine and when I open a new message and click "To" then select an address from the new contacts and click on send I am getting this error message:
"could not complete the operation. One or more parameter values are not valide 0x80070057"

I am still searching google, but please if you all know anything about this problem let me know.
