I need to import a thousand contacts into Exchange/Active Directory and into a specific OU. These conatcs are currently in a CSV file. What is the best way of importing them into Exchange 2007/Active Directory? I need these contacts to be mail-enabled.

You could import mail contacts from CSV file to AD with Exchange Management Shell in bulk.
Make sure you have CSV file (testcontacts.csv) with DisplayName, EmailAddress.

command to import mail contacts into OU (here example I gave is OU name is testOU)

Import-Csv testcontacts.csv | ForEach { New-MailContact -Name $_.DisplayName -ExternalEmailAddress $_.EmailAddress -OrganizationalUnit "testOU" }
