I'm at home and am using my home ISP to access the net.  I'm sending out work emails with my work email address appearing as the sender.  However since I'm sending these emails from my desktop outlook 2010  I'm actually sending them from my ISP email address. my work exchange account is not syncing my contacts that I'm creating at my desktop outlook.
Question:  How do I transfer a bunch of contacts from my home desktop outlook (which is using the work email address but not syncing ) to Outlook Web Access? My home-created contacts are not appearing on the work outlook web access.

If you only have OWA access then it isn't possible to do them in bulk - you would have to create them all individually.

Otherwise you need to use Outlook. Does your office allow Outlook Anywhere access?

You can export the contacts to a CSV  in Outlook and then go your OWA and import that CSV file in. Should work.

If you are using Outlook 2010 to send emails, there should be a folder called "Suggested Contacts" in your Contacts tab.

If yes, you can save the Outlook.pst in the location of your desktop PC below and ask your Exchange admin to upload your contacts to your Exchange account.

   C:\Users\[User]\Documents\Outlook Files

There is no way to export to CSV in Outlook Web Access.
