  • It is a *very* bad idea to use a 3rd party for importing addresses, unless they are a trusted online partner.


    For one thing, they'll be asking your customers/users for their email passwords, so their script can sign into their account and grab this personal information their behalf. It's no different from giving a stranger your email password, and inviting them to read your mail any time they wish. When you import contact lists from a webmail account, that accout's security is compromized until the password is changed.


    How many people do you think would use the same name/password for their email and for their online banking? Is it conceivable that someone with a webmail account might use identical information at eBay, PayPal, Hotmail, Yahoo, Google, Amazon, etc? It's more than conceivable, it's typical behavior. Crack someone's webmail account, and you're likely to be able to use that password for a few other interesting things.


    Better still, someone with your webmail password essentially becomes you, can change your password and lock you out, and begin doing all sorts of things on your behalf. Sending mail to your friends. Spamming. Buying things. Closing accounts. Forging identities.


    So. When you offer a feature like importing webmail contacts, you are asking the user to trust you with very sensitive information. Serve and respect your users by not betraying that trust. If you "trick" someone into cracking their hotmail open for a hacker to steal personal information because they thought they could trust you, you've got to consider potential liability when their bank account is cleaned out the next day.


    Sites that allow a user to import contacts from webmail are leveraging trust to ask their users to divulge very sensitive information. If you use another's service to do this, can you guarantee that they aren't phishing?
