Greetings, willtomaz808 !

1. Exchange 2003 uses Active Directory.  So you are not importing mail enabled contacts into Exchange per se, but importing them into AD (thereby making them viewable in the Exchange Global Address List).  The steps to perform this are well detailed in the following Microsoft Knowledge Base Article:

327620 How to use Csvde to import contacts and user objects into Active Directory
http://support.microsoft.com/?id=327620 

2. If you do not or cannot use the AD, You can import them as mail-enabled contacts, no need for creating new Active Directory Users. You can them create Views to display them on the address book as you want.
