good day
   i want to import contacts with their external email address to Exchange GAL, i know i have to import them in to active directory and then i create a new address list in Exchange system manager so it can be found in outlook address book drop down list.
what i need to know is how the format of the CSV file since when i do export in active directory i have account name and email address, not like this format ( cn=MailDisabledContact,OU=OU name,DC=Domainname,DC=com) how i can convert it to this format and what the attribute for the email address.
