Transfer outlook 2007 contact folder structure to Win Live

by magician35 - 7/6/12 7:27 PM

I have many contact folders in Outlook 2007, each with over 100 contacts. Does anyone have a trick for transferring that folder structure to a similar category structure in Windows Live Mail?

Since all contact imports to WLM are dumped into the single contacts folder, my only option is to print a list for each Outlook folder then go through the WLM contacts after each import, find all that belong in a specific category, and put them in the appropriate category. I'm looking at a horrendous task. I am going to try creating a field in each contact in Outlook which identifies the folder so those that belong in a particular category can be identified much quicker but that's still far from an efficient procedure.
