In Outlook 2003, how to export contacts in the "To..." field?

I've always wondered where those contacts are stored that pop up when you begin to type in the "To..." field...but now I actually need to know, in order to solve the customer's problem.

I am upgrading them to a new system, and went to export their Outlook 2003 contacts.  They have dozens of contacts, but none show an email address.  Yet when they begin to type in the "To..." field, it does the usual thing of popping up many email addresses.  For example, if I key in an "a", it shows all their contact names that start with "a", followed by their email addresses.

How can I get to THAT contact information and email addresses, and export them?  TIA
