contacts import doesn't populate the e-mail address field

I have a file of contacts that is saved in Excel 2003. When I import them into Outlook 2010 all columns populate the respective fields except for the e-mail addresses. I moved the column that contains the addresses to a new location in the file in hopes it was a one to one import (first column to first field but that didn't work). Any ideas?....thanks

Look about half way down in the Import section regarding map custom fields.
