You can import your local address book into a Public Contacts folder, which can be accessed and used like the address book from any Outlook client.
If you do not have any public folders, create one in CONTROL PANEL and grant yourself Publishing Editor access to the folder so you can change items inside. Then, in Outlook, open the new public folder, and create a new folder inside it. Specify that you want this folder to contain Contact items.
