Microsoft scanned this file for viruses. Microsoft used the most current virus-detection software that was available on the date that the file was posted. The file is stored on security-enhanced servers that help to prevent any unauthorized changes to the file. Eximwiz.exe converts Microsoft Exchange Bulk Export format (.csv) files to Microsoft Mail import format. After creating the output file, you can use the tool to interactively import addresses into a Mail Post Office on the network, or you can e-mail the import file to external recipients.

In addition, new functionality enables you to export from Mail, and create a .csv file to add Mail recipients as Microsoft Exchange custom recipients.

Eximwiz is useful when directory synchronization between a Microsoft Exchange Server implementation and Mail is not a viable option. For example, you are trying to populate a trading partner's Mail system with relevant addresses such as purchasing agents, from your global address list. Eximwiz can also be used to manually perform directory synchronization between a Microsoft Exchange Server computer and a foreign mail switch that does not support the Mail Dirsync protocol.
