Outlook to SeeEm importer

Import contacts from Outlook CSV files into your WordPress SeeEm Contact Manager.


Create the CSV file: In Outlook 2007, click 'File' -> 'Import and Export', select 'Export to a file', and click 'Next'. Select 'Comma Separated Values (Windows)' and click 'Next'. Select the contact folder you wish to export and click 'Next'. Choose a file path and name that you can remember and click 'Next'. finally, click 'Map Custom Fields...' -> 'Clear Map' -> 'Default Map' -> 'OK' -> 'Finish'. your CSV file will then be created.

Upload a CSV file: Click on the SeeEm importer link on your WordPress admin page (under Manage on WordPress 2.6 and below; under Tools in WordPress 2.7 and above). Choose the import options: upload new contacts as 'published' or as 'drafts', update existing contacts to reflect data in the CSV file (or not), delete info not found in the CSV file for existing contacts (or not). Choose the file you would like to import and click 'Import'.

The most important part of using the plugin is having your CSV file in the right format. See the example files under 'Outlook_to_SeeEm_importer' -> 'Example_CSV_Files' (in the downloaded .ZIP folder) for examples of proper format. The key for this plugin to work is to have the proper header names in the CSV file.


  • Most columns in the file are optional. The only ones that must be present are First Name and Last Name.
  • Most values are also optional. Again, the only ones necessary are those under First Name and Last Name column headings.
  • Once again, the order of columns in the file is not important, however the CSV header (the first line in the file that lists column names) must be present and its labels must correspond to the values separated by commas.


This plugin was inspired by and modeled after CSV Importer by Dennis Kobozev.

It uses much of the original code from CSV Importer in a modified form, as well as php-csv-parser by Kazuyoshi Tlacaelel.
