#### How to update large contact files

I have over 3,000 contacts in my Outlook database and cannot find any
software or service with which to verify/update the contacts. I am
looking for something like Plaxo, with which I could send out an email
to all my contacts to verify their information. The contact clicks on
the link and can update their information. Those that do not respond, I
can delete.  Plaxo has a 1,000 contact limit for its service. Any help?
Please email me at Thomas_Hartman@condenast.com. Thanks.

Clarify what you want to do. If you expect Outlook to update the email
addresses for all of your Contacts you have no clue what email software does
and can do.

Are you always so pleasant? I was very clear what I wanted the solution
to do: allow me to upload my contacts, have the contacts sent an email
to verify the contents of the contact information and give the addressee
the ability to update/change their information.

I see. No. That's not a function of email software. You'd need to look into
third party add-ins or web based services. Look here for some ideas:

Unless the "missing operative word" in your question is "free" then I
believe
the solution is provided by Plaxo itself
