    If you use powershell, you can download free tools from Quest Software (their ActiveRoles addons) that allow you to import CSV files and work with them in Active Directory.

    Even better... you can do it with the Exchange snapins....

    $ou = "<Destination DN>"
    $DC = "<FQDN of DC>"
    $users = "File location"

    import-csv $users | foreach {$last, $first, $mail = $_.last, $_.first, $_.mail new-mailcontact -name "$first $last" -ExternalEmailAddress "$Mail" -DomainController "$DC" -OrganizationalUnit "$OU"}

    I feel like I am babbling here now, but that is dependant on Exchange 2007 being your system of use... What mail system do you have?
