Export Contacts from Outlook


Outlook is able to store and export contacts beyond those found in the SLU Global Address book. When setting up SLU email across your devices, it can sometimes become the default service by which your contacts are stored. It is important to export your contacts before you lose access to them if/when your SLU account access ends.
