Contacts recovered. Now what?

I spent much monkey time cleaning up a lot more anomalies that I had realized were in my contact data.  I did it in Outlook.  I then did a Palm Hotsync specifying PC over rides handheld.  It wiped out the data on my Palm and replaced it with clean data from Outlook.  Data on the Palm looks good.  What a relief!
I then dumped the data in Outlook into a CSV file, deleted all records in google and imported the Outlook data into google.  For unknown reasons 8 records had minor problems but the google contacts never looked so good.
Syncing directly between the Palm and a web server is dead for the foreseeable future.
Meanwhile, Yahoo is up to its old tricks.  It hangs when I try to compose a message.
