Doesn't scale to large numbers
Authored by: jfaughnan on May 12, '09 02:33:31PM

This worked fine for small numbers of contacts. I tested using Outlook 2007 and a few hundred contacts and it failed with an error message.

to be fair i gave up on all these time consuming and unreliable methods.
I tried many way of moving full outlook profiles for me and clients.

I now use outlook2mac http://www.littlemachines.com/ and it has taken the pain out of the process.

I ran into the same problem with Outlook 2007 when I tried selecting all the contacts and choosing to forward them as vCards; I was able to work around it by creating a new, empty mail message, then moving the message window to one side, then selecting all the contacts, and dragging them to the mail message. Voila - after some minutes churning, a message with all the vCards as attachments was created with no error message!

Bah, I am a doofus. Or not enough of a Windows person. I was WRONG in that it does attach all the contacts to the message when you drag, but of course it does NOT attach them as vCards, but rather as Outlook items (NOT Apple Address Book friendly). Please ignore me as I back slowly out the door.....
