If you format your computer or change your email program, you don’t want to lose your contacts. As you know that outlook stores your emails with all your contacts in a very complicated file which can be exported into a CSV file that can further import into any other email program very easily.
Note: This method will be same for every version of Outlook (like Outlook 2003, 2007 and 2010)
