Importing Business Addresses into SharePoint

I've entered both business and home addresses for my contacts in Microsoft Office Outlook 2003. When I try to import these addresses into a contacts list on a Windows SharePoint Services site, only the business address appears. It imports the home and business phone numbers, but not the home address. Is it possible to import both addresses from Outlook into SharePoint contacts?

No, it's not possible, and here's why: When you click the Import Contacts link on a Windows SharePoint Services contacts list, a script in that page pops up a list of contacts for you to select from by using an ActiveX control that ships with Outlook 2003 and installs automatically the first time a Windows SharePoint Services site or other application needs it. But the information that control makes available for each contact includes only the business-address fields, not the home address information.
