just configure an exchange account and DO NOT check "cached mode" open outlook it will connect to exchange and you will be able to see your contacts open a pst and drag/drop them

I think Author meant he didn't want to import the e-mails into the .pst file again as he has already done so.

But above answer is correct.  I would suggest leaving the exchange account setting alone as the cached mode will not double up the e-mails in the .pst file.

Click on the contacts folder.
Click on a contact.
press CRTL + A on the keyboard to select them all
drag the contacts to the folder in the .pst file that you want them in, with the right mouse button.
answer copy or move.

Wait a bit and your done.

Hope I understood what you meant.
