Hi ! Murali Narayanaswamy , I also need the same solution. I have got some clue. JavaMail does not have the solution. We may get the solution from HttpClient. If you get any good solution for this please let me know.(email@example.com)

Still seraching for the exact clue. A closer solution thread I obtained was the following link
I have some library which is not free but not expensive either...which lets your fetch contacts from yahoo, hotmail, aol, msn, gmail, linked in, and many more.....email me on viralpatel79 @ yahoo. com for more information....
This thread may be old, but for the sakeness of completeness:
We at JAIDE (a German company) released our Java library for contact importing a while ago. It supports 25 webmailers, including LinkedIn and XING, and auto-updates itself.
We're using it at another project of ours, the Salam Business Club, so there's a guarantee that the library is quickly updated and stays fully functional.
(My apologies if this comes across as blatant self-promotion, I felt that this response fit in here.)
