Bulk Import Contacts into Exchange 2003
We are looking to add details of parents names and email addresses as contacts in Exchange 2003 so that the Head or other necessary staff can easily email parents either in bulk (via distribution list) or seperately through Outlook. We want to put it into exchange so that when/if details change we only have to make the change in one place (rather than each user making their own distribution list and altering each time)
I will export the details out of SIMS.net, but what order/format should I sort the data into and how do I go about bulk importing contacts in Exchange/AD?
I could just create the initial list of contacts for AD manually...... but I'd rather not!
Alternatively, how have your schools got your parents email addresses stored so that Senior Management or whoever can email them easily, but with a centralised management of the email addresses.
Cheers in advance.
