Windows 7: Windows 7 Outlook 2007 Address book and Sync with iPhone

Windows 7 Outlook 2007 Address book and Sync with iPhone

Hello everyone,
I am asking for help on one particular problem.
If you could spare some time here is my question:
- I run Win7 Ultimate and Outlook 2007.
- I enter my hotmail address into Outlook Connector, so Hotmail is my default message handler in Outlook. Every thing runs normally until I discover that I cannot sync my Contacts with my iPhone, either with iTunes or with MobileMe, although the "Contacts" folder in Outlook contains 300+ names.
After some investigation I found some explanation:
- The Contacts displayed in the Contacts folder of Outlook are from my hotmail address book (contacts in EMAIL REMOVED), and the Outlook contact book is empty!!! No wonder that the result of the sync is nil, because the only option in the sync procedure is to sync Contacts with Outlook.
In order to sync my contacts with my iPhone I think that I need to Move/Copy/Import all the contacts from (contacts in EMAIL REMOVED) to the Outlook Address book.
I don't know if it is possible or not.
Could you tell me?
All inputs are appreciated.
Thank you

Well, you can copy/paste them by doing Select All (CTRL-A) on the Hotmail contacts list in Outlook, then Copy (CTRL-C), then switch to the Outlook contact book and Paste (CTRL-V). That should hold you over until a little later this summer when Hotmail adds official support for wireless iPhone contact syncing via the Exchange ActiveSync protocol.

Hope that helps!

No, sorry it doesn't.
In Outlook I choose Contacts, Tools, Address Book then have a window with my hotmail.com address book.
First I cannot select all.
Then, for a test run, I copy one item, change the address book to Outlook, but every commands are greyed out in Outlook address book (which is empty) and paste or add a new entry in this book are denied.
