Retrieve your Yahoo email contacts

 

Yahoo Email Contacts

Have you ever wanted to get your email contact list from Yahoo?

Maybe you are changing email providers and don’t want to lose your contacts that 

you have accumulated over several years. 


Maybe you just want to get away from the problems of using Yahoo email.


In any case, getting your contact list can be very labor intensive. Here is the fastest, 

simplest, and easiest way that we have found.

How to Export your Yahoo Contacts


If you want to export just your Yahoo contacts, there is a quick and
easy way to do that.

  1. Login to your Yahoo mail.

  2. Go to the “Contacts” menu option.

  3. Select “Tools”.

  4. Click “Export”.

  5. You will now be given the option to export to Outlook, Thunderbird,
    vCard or as a “.CSV”
    file. CSV is recommended, because it is a
    common file type that is almost universally
    recognized and can
    be imported into most programs or apps that a user would want to
    import their list of contacts.

  6. Proceed to “Export” your Yahoo mail contacts.

  7. Select Save File.

  8. Choose the folder in which you wish to save your .CSV file.

  9. Finalize the process by clicking “OK”.

This method worked when I tested it. Your experience might be slightly different
but should be basically the same.
