This tutorial will show you how to export your Webmail contacts into another mail program.

Exporting contacts

Contacts can be exported in vCard format; the filename ends with.vcf.

To export contacts:

  • Click Address Book.

  • From the Groups pane, choose the group that contains the contacts that you want to export.

To select multiple contiguous items, select the first item, hold down the Shift key, and then click the last item. To select multiple non-contiguous items, hold down the Ctrl key and click on each of the items that you want to select.
