Importing contact from Gmail crashes Microsoft outlook

Problem: While importing contacts from the CSV exported from Gmail, Microsoft outlook crashes.

Details: This post specifically applies to people who have linked there orkut account to Gmail and have some really weird names added to their contact list. Somehow the email client isn’t able to handle long names in the email field and it crashes.

Solution: simply remove lengthy and invalid looking entries from your exported CSV, it should work.
