Or...people have read your question and simply didn't know the answer. There are limits to our fonts of knowledge.

http://www.squirrelmail.org/plugin_view.php?id=29 details a plug-in for SquirrelMail that imports CSV addresses, so it would seem as though the feature you desire is not available natively. Exetel would need to install this plugin in order to provide you this functionality.

I've installed the plugin linked (actually I had done it before CoreyPlover linked it, how's that for efficient ;) )

You should be able to import your addressbook now. All you need is to get it into CSV format. Please note that as a limitation of the plugin, I had to limit the filesize to 10KB. If your addressbook uses more than this, then you can split it up into 10KB chunks and import them one at a time. Should still be much faster than manually typing it all out :)
