Deepu - By default lookup window will display the 'Recently viewed Accounts'. You can able search the record in 'Search' box which will perform search in all records and display the search result record in that list.

For lookup window – There is no use of displaying all records in a lookup search window. Take an example like, if you have 10K account records and if you like to bring all the 10K records and show in the lookup search window then Surely it will affect the page load time, any way if you are display 10K records, it will be difficult for user to search Instead user can search the record in the search window which going to perform search operation in the object records and bring the record based on search query. Mapping Account record in Contact – All the related records in the the salesforce object are mapped based on the Id of the record. In your scenario the Field name in Dataloader is ‘AccountId’. Though in Salesforce UI it displays Account Name, you have map in data loader using the Id field.
