Re: Importing Outlook Contacts into ACT without duplicating

This is definitely in the AddOn arena, not a developer question (unless you want to re-invent the wheel).  You could, of course, check for dupes when importing and manually confirm each found duplicate.  There's also addons that do this, I think ImportIT is the most popular. I usually just manually check for dupes...
