How can my wife download her contact list from her work into a file and then
email me the entire contact list?

How can I then load that contact list into my Outlook at home?

Have your wife do the following:
Open Outlook and click File on the toolbar at the top of the
window.
From the drop down menu, select Import and Export.
Select Export to file from the box that's displayed.
Select the format of the file. Comma Separated Values should get
the job done. You can use Personal Folder File if you want.
In the Folders to export, hightlight Contacts.
Follow the prompts to save the file.

Once you receive the file, simply reverse the procedure and
choose to import.

If you can't get this to work, you might want to post your
question to the Outlook newsgroup.

Use the Export function in Outlook.

Highlight Contacts in the Folder List, then click on File > Import-Export.
In the window that pops up click on Export to a file and click Next.
Highlight Personal Folder File (.pst) and click Next. Contacts will be
highlighted. If there are folders in the Contacts folder, check Include
Subfolders. Pick a folder to save to and highlight Do Not Export Duplicate
Items and click Finish.

Now all the contacts will be in the pst file. Copy it to media where it can
be brought back to your home PC to be imported. It's pretty much the reverse
procedure to Import. Just choose Import from another program or file from the
list.

Export can also be used to back up all of your email folders in case of a
crash. In that case, you would just highlight the Outlook Today folder
(instead of Contacts) and check the box next to Include Subfolders. This will
export all folders in Outlook.

That's just like my opinion, Man........

Pfbackup can be configured to automatically backup your entire
..pst file on a regular basis.
