Importing contacts from Earthlink.net mail

I just started my comcast mail account and was looking to move my old eamil contacts from Earthlink.net to my new account.  I do not have outlook on this computer only windows live mail that i cannot find an option to import contacts from on xfinity mail contact import list...

 

Any suggestions or help?

Re: Importing contacts from Earthlink.net mail

What you need to do is export the address book from Windows Live Mail to your computer as a .csv file, and then import it into the Comcast address book.  I found this information for another email program, although it's not specific to Comcast it should be the same proceedure.  In Windows Live Mail--------------------------

 

  1. Click Contact tab at your bottom-left.
  2. Click Export in the toolbar.
  3. Make sure CSV (Comma Separated Values) is highlighted.
  4. Click Export.
  5. Now click Browse. Pick a folder to save the exported contacts.
    Type the desired name under File name.
  6. Click Save.
  7. Now click Next.
  8. Make sure all the address book fields you want included are checked.
  9. Note that Windows Live Mail does not export first and last names separately, even though there are First Name and Last Name fields. Do choose Name instead.
  10. Click Finish

 I would suggest you save it to your desktop to make it easy to navigat to for the import to Comcast.  I don't have Windows Live Mail, so this information is second hand.

Thank you for the steps, will try this in a little bit and get back with you.  Need to make a deadline on a project.
