Export your Yahoo Contacts

Want to have your Yahoo Contacts in one of your other accounts? You can, but you'll need to export them first. Here's how.

Exporting Contacts

Exporting your contacts to .csv or .vcf gives you the freedom to import them to almost any other email program.

Export to .csv or .vcf

  Important: Contacts imported from Facebook won't be exported.

  1. In your Yahoo Mail's Left Navigation column, click the Contacts icon Contacts icon.
    - Your Yahoo Contacts appear.
  2. Select Actions | Export.
  3. Select a format:
    • Microsoft Outlook - Creates a .csv file designed for Outlook's import feature.
    • Netscape/Thunderbird - Creates a text file designed for Thunderbird's import feature.
    • Yahoo CSV - Creates a standard .csv file, compatible with most email programs.
    • vCard Single File - Use this if your email program supports .vcf files and you'll be importing all contacts.
    • vCard, Zip of .VCF files - Use this if your email program supports .vcf files and you'll be importing only some of your contacts. 
  4. Click Export Now.
