How to find a program to send my email directory to Excel

I tried to find such a program on my own. I found this program called "Email Printery".
It turned out to not work for me. Instead of looking for hours on the internet, I thought I might

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing.

The answer will depend on what email system you are using.

If MS Outlook, then it is trivial, but other email clients maybe not so easy.


if you use MS Exchange you can export Active directory object with csvde

csvde -f output.csv -d "dc=domain,dc=com" -r "(objectClass=user)" -l

I don't know if we are currently using MS Exchange, but I will suggest that to the Sys Admin man
and see what he says about it.

He says that we are using MS Exchange, or something similar.

The project that I had in mind was to make a methodical system for deleting folders from my email that I personally deem to be garbage, without deleting the valuable ones. Is it possible to use Active Directory to delete email folders?

Exchange is your mail server - are you using Outlook as your email client?

If so, then exporting your contacts to Excel (say) is very easy.  It might vary depending on which version of Outlook, but this is for Outlook 2007.  Other versions are similar:

1) Go to your contacts folder

2) File - Import & Export

3) Select the option to 'Export to a file'

4) Next

5) Choose 'Comma Separated Values (DOS)'

6) Next

7) Make sure your contacts folder is selected (should be already from (1) above, but just make sure)

8) Next

9) Choose where to save the file (make sure you can find it again!)

10) Next

Once the export is done, open excel, and do a 'file - open' and find the file (you'll probably have to change the filetype to 'all' (*.*) to see the file you saved).
