Export Contact List from Hotmail

Postby Vasilisk_CB » Sun Sep 12, 2004 2:43 am

Hallo, People!

Pleas Help!!!
I need the contact list from Hotmail to be automatically exported using PHP. It must work like
1) User input "login" and "password" of his Hotmail account into a form
2) Script pull out from Hotmail the contact list and type it in a table
with columns "Name" and "Email Adress".
If somebody know how to work with HOTMAIL plz tell me.

Thanks.

I think not.
I need it for Hotmail and Yahoo.
But I tried to get page with fopen() including all needed parameters
in query string(login=xxx&passwd=xxxx&etc), but Hotmail and
Yahoo report that cookies are not available in my browser(it
is PHP when using fopen()).
Please, tell me how to get cookie when using fopen() or smthing else.

Thanks.

Try CURL. I believe it has support for cookies, or at least you can pass a custom header to spoof them.

At any rate, Google has plenty of information on this.
