You could  
Export your contacts to a .csv file, then import them into outlook


In mysql you can use SELECT INTO OUTFILE


select * INTO OUTFILE
'Drive:/path/contacts.csv'
FIELDS TERMINATED BY ','
LINES TERMINATED BY '\r\n'
from ContactsTable;

Then import to outlook

Ahh sink Too.. sorry

Aww sure, sorry, miss read that ;)


The other way round..


Export from (Comma Seperated values)
SAVE TO>  c:\contacts.csv

You will then need to

create table to hold the columns


Then in mYsql Browser

load data local infile
"drive:/path/contacts.csv"
INTO TABLE tablename
FIELDS TERMINATED BY ','
LINES TERMINATED BY '\r\n';

if you have a heading in line (1)one which you dont need, add

load data local infile
"drive:/path/contacts.csv"
INTO TABLE tablename
FIELDS TERMINATED BY ','
LINES TERMINATED BY '\r\n'
Ignore 1 lines;

Someone may have a better idea of how to sync, if thats what you need, but hopefully that can get you started ;)
