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.
At the bottom of the page, click Import Contact(s) from...
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!
Enter your login credentials and click Sign in.
The page will refresh and ask you to allow permission for OutboundEngine to connect to your account. Click Yes.
Next you are able to select the contacts to import. You can either select the box at the top right which will select all contacts for import (click the box again to undo).
You can click the box next to each individual contact to be more selective.
Once you have made your selections, click Import.
Then click OK from the Success window and you are done.
Now those contacts are included in my contact database!
