Sharing Contact Groups can be a great timesaver when multiple people need to continuously e-mail the same groups of individuals (for more details see Sharing Contact Groups). You can easily import a Contact Group that was e-mailed to you as an attachment.

Do the following:

   1.   Open the e-mail containing the Contact Group.

   2.   In Outlook, open the Contacts view.

   3.   Drag the Contact Group attachment from the e-mail message onto the desired Contacts folder. Outlook automatically creates the contact entries for you:

Drag and drop Outlook 2010 Contact Group
