    you can use this component with .Net, c# and VB.. http://www.socialcontactsimporter.net Worked on our web site like a dream and works with all the major providers, Hotmail, Gmail, Yahoo, Outlook, Outlook Express, Firefox and so on..

    We tried a number of ways even creating our own but was no good because the email providers (hotmail etc,) kept on changing their web sites making our code break.. Dont waist your time. Life is too short.

    They also do hourly testing to make sure it works.
