    Contacts ?
    Export to *.csv, then import to OL07

    If the contacts are in a Live ID...you've a few options, the first is highly suggested, the second requires a Hotmail type Live
    Id(hotmail.com, live.com, msn.com)

    1. Logon with your Live ID at http:/contacts.live.com and use the web interface to export the contacts to a *.csv file for later
    import into OL07
    - why you may ask<g>.. The web interface is more robust in exporting data from all possible fields in use(e.g. WLM Export
    function does not export the following, other email, work email, IM address)

    2. Install the Outlook Connector(OLC) and setup the Live ID account in Outlook 2007(you will have the ability to access and manage
    email, contacts, and calendar)
    - key words is access and manage. Setting up an email account in the OLC does not add contacts to the Outlook pst profile,
    since it uses an *.ost file to store the data. Just like the contacts, one can access and manage that Live ID's calendar, and like
    Contacts, it does not integrate the calendar with Outlooks calendar(same reason data is in an *.ost file, not merged or synced with
    the *.pst file)


    Log Connection data ?
    Why...isn't log data in a txt file ? Are you possibly referring to setting up an email account...if so, set it up manually in
    OL(note: OL07 does not support http files, thus if the account is a Hotmail account..use the OLC or setup the Hotmail account as a
    Pop3 account in Outlook. Doing the latter will not allow one to access and manage the Hotmail mail, contacts, and calendar in OL.
    Hotmail and MSN Accounts POP3/SMTP Access
