I found one other post on this in the forum from last Fall which no one seems to have followed up on. see http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php?topic=6575.0
The Outlook sync program listed as Outlooksync.msi is missing from the /usr/pluto/installers directory--although there is a link to it on the admin home page. Does anyone have this file so that it could be posted here or in the wiki? It seems that it used to be included and used to work. see http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/OutlookSync
So far, the importcontacts.zip which is in the installers directory does not work--repeatedly crashing.
The object here is not so much to use Outlook but to get an idea about how to get contacts into the mysql database without having to do them one by one. I'm kind of surprised that there has been so little interest in this.
Any help or suggestions greatly appreciated.
