Outlook: Importing Information into Someone Else's Contacts

How can a personal assistant who works with the vice president's mailbox import information into the executive's Contacts folder from a business card scanner that generates a comma-delimited file?

You can't import information directly into someone else's mailbox folders, but a relatively easy solution exists. Create a new folder to store contact items in a mailbox under the assistant's default Contacts folder, and name the folder Import. Then, import the information into the new Import folder. Finally, drag the imported contacts from the Import folder to the Contacts folder in the vice president's mailbox.
