This would seem to be a fairly substantial application development effort.  It is not all that "hard" but you would need some experienced programmers for a few weeks to build the data base tables and queries.  From the look of things, it only costs about $30 per year, so the effort might not be worth it - easier just to use the application that is already developed.

I searched with Google for "GMail API PHP" and this turned up.  Look for the phrase "Contact List" about a third of the way down the page.  There were a lot of other references that sounded promising, too.

Another promising search was for "outlook email address book extractor" - there appear to be a lot of products.  This page looked like it might be helpful:
