Importing email addresses from Outlook

To import your contacts from Outlook (a .csv file), follow these simple steps:

  1. From the Outlook main menu, select File > Import and Export. This will take you to Outlook's "Import and Export" Wizard.
  2. Select Export to a file and then click Next.
  3. Select Comma Separated Values (Windows) and then click Next.
  4. Choose to export from the Contacts folder and then click Next.
  5. Type a file name (ex: "mycontactlist") and click Browse to locate the directory where you want to place the exported file. Then click OK to close the "Browse" dialog box.
  6. Click Next, and then Finish. The new CSV file should now be in the location that you indicated.

Your file is now ready to import into your account.

Note: If you have your email addresses in an Outlook Personal Address Book, first convert your email Personal Address Book to a Contacts folder. See your Outlook online help for more information.
