The following Drupal modules enable your website to grab all emails from the contact list in a user’s nominated mail account, or buddy list on a community website.

Contact List Importer

http://drupal.org/project/dcl_importer Imports contact list from: Gmail, Yahoo, AOL, Lycos, Myspace, and MSN Messenger Contacts Requires modules: 1) Invite (invite.module) http://drupal.org/project/invite Invite dependent upon: 2) Token (token.module) http://drupal.org/project/token Contact List Importer works on distinct Names in a contact list not on distinct emails. It picks up the first email corresponding to each distinct contact name; this is a logical implementation.

Import Contacts

http://drupal.org/project/import_contacts ImportContacts enables the user to upload their contacts from Microsoft Outlook, Outlook Express, Windows Address Book, Mozilla Thunderbird, Palm Desktop, Entourage, Mac OS-X Address Book, LinkedIn and others. Dependent upon the following modules being installed: 1) Buddylist (buddylist.module) http://drupal.org/project/buddylist Buddylist enables the user to grab their contacts list from the community websites: Bebo, Flickr, Multiply, MySpace, Photobucket, Paxo 2) DataMiner API (dataminerapi.module) 3) Invite (invite.module) Drupal/PHP implementation note: CLI & IC(DataMiner) depend upon the Client URL Library Functions (libcurl) being installed on the PHP server.
