Export Contacts from Outlook Client to Outlook Web Access?

Hello All,

Have a query from a user who wishes to somehow get his contacts he had on his outlook client to his OWA?

Is there any way this can be done?

Thanks!

OWA contacts mea that they are in the mailbox and Outlook also sees the same. So what we see in OWA is there in the mailbox.

So if you are having 2 accounts or export contacts from a different user to a different user that can be done but if its one user and he see them in outlook he would also see them in OWA as its a reflection of your mailbox information on the server.

You can export the contacts into a .pst file (File, Import/Export, Export To a File, Personal Folder File (.PST)) and then the only way that I know how to get them into OWA is to setup a cached Exchange account to it and then import the .PST.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

If a user has 2 accounts for example a@domaiin.com and a1@home.com yes it can be done. but if its the same account that we are having so its already there.

If you're talking about copying contacts from a different Outlook account:
Export the Outloook contacts to PST by going to File > Import Export > Export to file > PST file >setup the Exchange account in Outlook on any machine > go to file > import > import from another program or file > personal folder file (.pst) > browse to the exported file > import items into the same directory on Exchange account

Or, if his current Outlook can connect to Exchange itself all you need to do is drag and drop the contacts into the Exchange contacts in the users mailbox. Then, they'll show up in OWA in the contacts list.

Or, if the user's Outlook is already connected to Exchange Rancy is right...what you have in Outlook will be available in OWA. You just need to browse to the contacts list.

Is the user's outlook not the exchange account they are access in OWA?

Sorry for the late reply we have decided to put both sites on the same domain so can use exchange.

Will try to give out points evenly as they all provide good information.
