    Import/export Contacts For 'mail'
    i-Book/G4/1.3/OS X Tiger

    I am trying to import my contacts from my web-based (Earthlink) e-mail client. As per the instructions, I exported the contacts to my computer as .csv files and then imported them with Mac 'Mail' When I do it, it shows all of the contacts to be imported, but after I click the import button, I get nothing. I even tried the same technique with Entourage and got several hundred empty contacts.

    What am I doing wrong?

    I also went to Hotmail, but they don't even appear to offer the option to export their contacts from the web-based client. (how very 'MicroSoft'). Is that true, or did I just overlook the option.

    Anyway, If there is something I am doing that I can correct, it would wonderful. I can't imaging entering all of my contacts manually. I lost the originals when I did my upgrade. (my fault)

    Thanks in advance,

    Den Gleason

    Try importing them into the address book, not into Mail...

    Open address book and select 'Import...' from the 'File' menu.

    Export as vCard, much easier to manage that way.
