How to import contacts from Windows Live/Hotmail/Outlook.com using the NEW Importer

Follow

We now have a simple contact database importer currently available for Windows Live/Hotmail/Outlook.com*.  No need to export your database, just import it directly from your OutboundEngine account!

*Outlook.com is different than the program Outlook that you run on your computer.  Outlook.com is a web-based platform

 

Login to app.outboundengine.com and click on the Contacts tab.

Select either the Windows Live, Hotmail or Outlook.com logo, whichever applies to you.


 

The first window below will appear, followed by pop-up window (also below) prompting you to login to your account (if you are not already logged in). Windows Live, Hotmail and Outlook.com are all now connected to the same site, live.com.  So if you do not see the words or logos for Hotmail or Windows Live, do not fret, you are still in the right place!
