I have an excel file that has all of our district's email addresses on them, and I would like to import this into one of our secretaries Outlook 2007.  Is there a way that I can import this file so that it creates a group within Outlook 2007 in one step?  I want to avoid importing all of these contacts, and then choosing each one of them individually to add to a group.  Please help :)
