    Start by exporting the contacts from your Yahoo account to your Mac as .VCF files. Follow the directions from Yahoo here: How do I export contacts from my Yahoo! Mail Contacts folder into other accounts? | Yahoo! Mail Help

    Then Import the .VCF files into Apple's Address Book (this is what the Mac Email program uses to store it's contacts). Open Address Book and select File > Import > vCards. Select your contacts and click Open.

    Thanks so much for this, so far so good... however, it looks like I can't seem to import the vCards except one at a time - which is a pain since I have hundreds... I tried shift-click, but it didn't work. Any suggestions?

    I haven't tried this, but what happens if you drag all the selected VCards into Contacts' open window?
