How to download contacts from a website

I have ACT! 6.0 (old, I know). I am trying to download a list of teachers from a school's website. The person who used to do our company's mailings said this is how she got all the lists. However, the manual that came with my software says to look online for instructions, and the online instructions were confusing and didn't seem related to my situation. The "live chat" guy completely blew me off since I didn't have the latest version of ACT.

 

Can anyone help? I just need instructions on getting contacts from the internet (i.e. downloading a list of teachers from a school's website).

It really depends on what format they are stored in on the website and if they are all new contacts or if some will need to be de-duped against data you already have

You would need an addon to do that efficiently. One of the best was called Webprospect from crmaddons.com. They do still offer the version for ACT! 6.
