I would like to merge several contact folders in the public folder on my Exchange 2003 server into one public contact list. I am using my Outlook 2003 client to export the contacts into a pst or csv file. When I try to import either pst or csv into the Public contact folder I get a MAPI ERROR 0x80040107 or the Public contact list is not shown on the “import to” list. Any ideas why this is happening?

This is for Exchange Server 5.5, but may still apply:

Another possibility, also for ES 5.5:

You cannot import directly in to a public folder from a PST file.
You either have to import in to a folder in a mailbox or open the PST file in Outlook and then select all of the contacts and simply copy and paste them in to the folder.
