Your Contacts are stored in a PST file. Try looking
on Sue Moshers Slipstick site for some information
on what to look for and where to find it:

We are converting from an inhouse Exchange server to an ASP's exchange server. The email addresses are the same, but of course the AD forrest isn't.

The people that get the entire address book get it from one person who types in the names into a PST file. That PST file, when imported, seems to switch from SMTP to X400 syle addresses, and on the new server these addresses are wrong. Due to the G...
