I have a user who is currently using Squirrelmail as his email client.  He would like to export his contacts from Squirrelmail and import them into his local Outlook 2003 client.  Does anyone have instructions on how to do this?

    Greetings pankis !

    Check if your version of Squirrelmail can export the Contacts as comma, separated (CSV) value format.  If so, export the contacts as CSV file.  Then you can import the CSV file into Outlook.

    Hope this helps, war1
