    You can quickly export your Gmail Contacts list into a CSV file. Here's how:

    1. Sign in to Gmail.
    2. Click Contacts along the side of any Gmail page.
    3. Click Export at the top of your Contacts list.
    4. Choose whether to export all contacts or only one group.
    5. Select the format in which you'd like to export your contacts' information.
    6. Click Export.
    7. Choose Save to Disk then click OK.
    8. Select a location to save your file, and click 'OK.'


    Depending on the requirements of the program to which you're importing your contacts, you can easily edit the this CSV to fit your needs. Spreadsheet programs like Microsoft Excel make it easy to create and edit CSV files.

    You can import your address books (from Outlook, Hotmail, Yahoo!, orkut, and other services) into Gmail. Importing your contacts isn't difficult. To get started, follow these steps:

    1. First, you'll need to format your contacts as a CSV file -- often times, address books exported from other mail providers are already formatted as CSV files. You can also create your own CSV file.

    2. Once you have a CSV file with all your contacts' information, import the file and transfer your contacts to Gmail. Note that you can only import up to 3000 contacts at a time. If you have more than 3000 contacts, you'll need to create multiple CSV files to upload.

    To import contacts to Gmail:

    1. Create a custom CSV file, or export the address book from your other webmail provider or email client as a CSV file.
    2. Sign in to Gmail.
    3. Click Contacts (located below your list of views) on any Gmail page.
    4. Click Import in the top portion of the Contact Manager.
    5. Click the Browse... or Choose File button and locate the CSV file you'd like to upload.
    6. Select the file and click the Import button.


    Once you've successfully uploaded the document, Gmail will display the number of contacts imported.
