    Hello,

    To migrate your contacts from Microsoft Outlook or Outlook Express the first thing you need to do is export your contacts:

    Microsoft Outlook:
    • Select File, then Import/Export, and select Export.
    • Choose Comma Separated Values (Windows) and then select Contacts
    • Click Export
    Outlook Express:
    • Select File, then Export, and select Address Book
    • Select Text File (Comma Separated Values).
    • Click Export
    To import the contacts to Gmail

    • Export the address book from your other webmail provider or email client as a CSV file using the above directions if necessary.
    • Login to Gmail.
    • Click Contacts in the left navigation on any Gmail page.
    • Click Import in the top right portion of the Contacts screen.
    • Click the Browse button and select the contacts CSV file.
    • Click the Import button.
