    Gmail contacts into Thunderbird

    Hello,
    how to export my contacts from gmail to thunderbird. i know this is normal if you open the file in Excel. The comma is not considered as separator in Excel, but in Thunderbird

    If you want a result in Excel, open the. Csv file with an editor (notepad) and replace all commas by semicolons. But that no longer work for Thunderbird.

    During import the CSV file, you must use at least the buttons "Up" and "Down" during the Stage 1 so as to insert the field ( "Fields in the Address Book") with the data we want to match ( "Registration Data to import").

    For example, "First e-mail address" should be placed in front of "E-mail Address".
    This gap is a bit of Gmail's fault, since their CSV file does not meet the classical order.

    So from there:
    1 - Select "Outlook CSV", and save the file where you want on the computer
    2 - In Thunderbird, go to Tools / Address Book (Ctrl-2)
    3 - choose Tools / Import ... and select "Address Book" and "Text"
    4 - In the window to designate the file, specifies that the format is "Separated by commas" and refers to the CSV file And then, there will not be the first to submit a column, as you described

    Import Your Gmail Contacts into Mozilla Thunderbird

    To export your address book from Gmail and import it into Mozilla Thunderbird:

    • Save your Gmail contacts as gmail-to-outlook.csv.
    • Select Tools | Import... from the menu in Mozilla Thunderbird.
    • Make sure Address Books is selected.Click Next >.
    • Highlight Text file (LDIF,.tab,.csv,.txt) under Please select the program from which you would like to import. Click Next >.
    • Select the gmail-to-outlook.csv file you just created.
    • Make sure First record contains field names is checked.
    • Use the Move Up and Move Down buttons to match Mozilla Thunderbird address book fields on the left with Gmail fields on the right.
      o Make sure at least
      o Primary Email and E-mail Address and
      o Last Name and Name match.
      o Gmail has a unified name field and does not distinguish between first and last names.
      o You can use the Next button at the top to see what the import process will produce.
    • Click OK.
    • Now click Finish.


    In your Mozilla Thunderbird address book, you will now find a folder named "gmail-to-outlook" with all imported contacts.
