Export Your Gmail Contacts

If you’ve been using Gmail for a while, you have probably built quite a list of contacts (Address Book). If you’d like to export your contacts for use in a desktop email program or other application, you’ll be glad to know it’s really easy to do.

Here’s how:

Log-in to your Gmail account. Right beneath the Google logo, you will see the word Gmail and right next to the word Gmail, you’ll see a tiny down-arrow. Click the down-arrow and select “Contacts” from the list. See the picture below:

When you click Contacts, another dialog appears.

Click on “More” then click on “Export”. See?

When you click on Export you’ll be able to choose the contacts you want to export (we’ve selected “All”) and the format in which you want to save your contact list. Almost always you’ll want to choose “Outlook CSV” because this is a standard format recognized by the vast majority of email program.

Once you’ve selected the contacts you want to export and the format in which you wish to export your contacts list, just click the blue “Export” button. Your contacts list will be downloaded to your computer where you can import it to most email programs by clicking on “File” “Import” and choosing CSV format and then browsing to the file you downloaded from Gmail.

It’s just that simple 🙂

Our new Cloudeight Direct Thunderbird Email Set-up Service

Microsoft has announced that as of January 2017, they are no longer updating or supporting Windows Live. Microsoft addresses no longer work in Windows Live, and many ISP that use new secure servers, or have plans to, will soon stop working with Windows Live Mail.  And Windows Mail on Windows 10 is a problem because every time Windows 10 has a major update, Windows Mail has to be reset. Plus, the Mail App included with Windows 10 is very basic and few people find it useful

Mozilla Thunderbird is a great alternative for those of you who have been using Windows Live Mail or Windows Mail on Windows 10 and who don’t want to use the limited Windows 10 Mail App. Thunderbird is compatible with all email accounts, including all Microsoft accounts, Windows 10 updates don’t affect it, and has the familiar look of Windows Mail and Windows Live Mail. However it’s very different as far as setting it up and configuring it.

So we’re offering Cloudeight Thunderbird Email set-up service.

    I use Windows Live mail. My server is set up as POP3. Does it have to be IMAP to install Thunderbird?
