How to Work With Contact List Export/Import Process
by cmwaugh22 - 9/2/12 1:19 AM
I have a totally messed up contact list on WLM and it had duplicate after duplicate after duplicate contacts with over 4,000 email contacts.
I exported (.csv) the current contact list to a thumb drive to clean up the duplicates in Excel and now have 1,000 email contacts.
Here are my issues/questions:
1. It looks like many other imports have been done to this contact list which caused it to grow and duplicate and change the original format.
2, If I import my cleaned up (1,000) contact list will it overwrite the old contact (4,000) list currently residing in WLM ... or ... do I have to delete the current contact list in WLM and then import the new contact list?
3. How will this affect my current emails or category folders?
4. Are there any other red flags I need to be aware of?
