I found the easiest way to move/copy contacts over to a Sharepoint Contacts list. Navigate to the List in Sharepoint and click on "Connect to Outlook". Now you will have the contacts list show up in Outlook under your contacts tab. Find the folder in Public Folders where the contacts are stored and simply select all your contacts (ctrl+A), drag and drop ...

Use this: <SharePoint:AppendOnlyHistory runat="server" FieldName="Contact_x0020_Notes" ControlMode="Display" ItemId="{@ID}"/> You won't necessarily need that ItemId.

If you're using SharePoint server you can use the User Profile Service to sync your user's properties with AD. Then instead of using a contacts list just use the user list in SharePoint. This list I find serves better as your corporate contact list as it does provide real info (from AD and from user's updating their own info) and with enabling my sites you ...

If you have a lot of data to migrate, you could look at third party tools to assist with moving data. I just tried with a public contact list here, I selected all the users, copied them, pasted them into Excel and from there, you can massage any data, and upload it to a contacts list in datasheet view.

3000 items in a list is no problem. SharePoint supports up to 30,000,000. See SharePoint Server 2010 capacity management: Software boundaries and limits Viewing more than 2000 at a time degradades performance.

If you add a person/group field to your list of contacts, you can set the display to Name(with picture) to show the picture from the user's profile automatically. There is alos the possibility of adding a hyperlink column to the list to point to an image of the user so it's displayed inline. Another alternative is to just upload the image of the user as an ...

OOTB, you can export the list to Excel and select the users you need and put them in your email. You can also connect the list to Outlook and it'll import everyone into a separate Other Contacts list which you can then select from. If those aren't viable, then you need to buy one like the one mentioned or roll your own.

There isn't anyway out of the box to do this. You would either need to write some custom code to do this or you could use a third-party solution. Bamboo has a "Group Email Web Part" that might work for you: http://store.bamboosolutions.com/sharepoint-group-email-web-part.aspx

I am working on this issue (for the last 6 hours) right now. To resolve this, I went into Sharepoint and edited the fields for the Contact List. I deleted the field named "Web Page", which had a hyperlink datatype. I created a field call "Web Page" which is just a text field. This appears to have fixed the issue and I am now getting my contacts to add to ...

You can use out-of-the-box "Connect to Outlook" functionality on Contacts list. Contacts are exported to Outlook separate contact group. Then you can call Outlook Mail Merge functionality to create personalized e-mail messages using Word as editor. But you can not select recipients in SharePoint. You need to filter recipients in Outlook. If you want to ...

Presence in SharePoint is enabled when the user has a valid SIP address associated with their User Profile. The visitor has to have an IM client like Lync, IM or Communicator, and they have to be logged in to the messaging server. When you say you have to "create a contact list". What do you mean? If you enable profile import, the User Profile Service will ...

We use Contacts & Calendars in SharePoint when they are shared by multiple people. (These are imported back into Outlook through the Actions / Connect to Outlook function. These allow two way sync between users and SharePoint and work quite well. In terms of email we use MacroView to allow easy dragging and dropping of content between Outlook and ...

I like centralized storage in Sharepoint. It allows you and others to modify them and utilize them in various other applications within the site, purchasing, support requests, etc. It also allows you to leverage Sharepoint workflows for any sort of new client/contact onboarding processes. Contacts can be exported from Sharepoint.
