Contacts you have created in your mailbox will not automatically be transferred in the mail migration. If you want to copy your contacts to your alumni mailbox, follow these instructions using the Outlook Web App (webmail). Alternatively, you can follow the Microsoft Outlook for Windows instructions.

Note that this process will not export the Global Address List (Universlty address book), only contacts that you have personally created/saved. It also only copies individual contacts. If you have created any personal contact lists, you'll need to manually recreate them in your alumni mailbox.
