OWA Contacts Export - Confused

Posted on 2009-04-18
Last Modified: 2012-06-21
Hi there - I was reading a previous post where a man was trying to find a way to export contact from OWA so he could re-load back into Outlook and eventually into his smartphone, etc.  War1 suggested copying and pasting OWA contacts into an Excel spreadsheet, then saving as a CSV - easy enough from there.  But when I'm on my web access mail and click contacts, I cannot seem to highlight and copy any of these entries, either with a right click or on the menu  bar above.  Am I doing something wrong?  Is there another work-around or third party app?  Anyway to get my server administrators to pull them off?  I lost all my contacts on Outlook when my computer crashed and OWA still has them...

Thanks, Diane

    OWA is connected to exchange.  Log into a computer on your network that has outlook and startup outlook.  Your contacts will be there.  You can do a file -> export into a .pst file if you need them.  But usually you can just download activesync 4.5 and hook it up to your smart phone to sync your email and contacts.

    While this answer was technically accurate, I required a solution that did not use Outlook to retrieve addresses (crashed computer as mentioned in the question).
