create a .csv file for example book.csv and add this details in it. Name,Firstname,Lastname,Externalemailaddress

then run command Import-Csv book.csv|%{New-MailContact -Name $_.Name -DisplayName $_.Name -ExternalEmailAddress $_.ExternalEmailAddress -FirstName $_.FirstName -LastName $_.LastName}

You could also use something like AD Manager Plus. It works real well and has a nice UI for editing everything in Active Directory including a mass import of users from a .csv file.
