-------------------------------------------------------I would probably handle 
this differently, but it really depends on what you
intend to do with the contacts. Some information there would be helpful to
give you a recommendation.

Subject: [ExchangeList] mail contacts max capacity

http://www.msexchange.org
-------------------------------------------------------Have a scenario I
have not run into yet.  I have an access database with about 200K contacts
that we need to have real-time updating and contact with via email & mail
merges for several users.  The request is to have all these contacts pulled
into an address book on exchange2007 broken down by categories.

1. How can I get all these contacts imported into the mail contact  address
book I can create via a csv file using the exchange power shell, or from
access mapping the fields to the corresponding data.
So far I have found a way to script it with a csv file.

Shell one-liner:

# contacts.csv is a sample csv file containing below columns:
#     name,company,department,displayName,targetAddress,mailNickname
import-csv contacts.csv | foreach { new-mailcontact -alias $_.mailnickname
-name $_.displayName -ExternalEmailAddress $_.targetaddress -org Users }


2. My concern is the max number of records the address book can handle
without breaking exchange.


3. Is there a better software solution that can tie in with exchange?



Christian
