Export GMAIL Contacts | Import CSV Evolution | Outlook | Other Email Clients

Export GMAIL contacts and then import CSV into Evolution Email Client. You may use this process for Outlook and other email clients. This post assumes a couple things. One, that you have a Google Account with Contacts saved in it. Two, you have Evolution installed on your computer. If you need help installing the Evolution Email client on your computer please see our post Gmail Ubuntu | Manage Email Quickly | Evolution Multiple Email Account Solution.

Export Gmail Contacts

To export your Gmail Contacts make sure to sign into your Gmail or Google Account. The next thing to do is click this link to visit your contacts that you have saved in your Google Account. Look at the menu on the left and scroll down the page a little bit. Click on the menu item that says “More”.

For “Importer Type” choose “Import a Single File”.

Now select your file. When seeing file type select Outlook CSV. Since the export is an Outlook CSV file I believe we should follow suit. Feel free to experiment if you want.
