If you like to use Outlook Express, you’re in luck: Your LinkedIn contacts can go live there just as easily as they can anywhere else. Don’t you just love the way LinkedIn makes your life easier? After you create your export file, you can export your connections to Outlook Express by following these simple steps:

  1. On your main Outlook Express screen, choose File->Import.

  2. In the Import window that opens, select the Other Address Book option and then click Next.

  3. When Outlook Express asks you to select a file type to import from, select the Text File (Comma Separated Values) option and then click the Import button.

  4. When Outlook Express asks you for the file to import, enter the path and filename of your exported file, or click the Browse button to find the file on your computer. Click Next.

  5. Verify the fields that you’re importing into Outlook Express (click the Change Mapping button if you want to change how the information is being imported) and then click Finish to start the process.

Congratulations! You have now successfully imported your LinkedIn contacts into Outlook Express. Now start networking!
