Exporting Contacts from Windows® Mail
Get to know more about exporting contacts from Windows Mail to any other e-mail client
Windows Mail is an e-mail client from Microsoft. Windows Mail is capable of importing and exporting contacts. The complete lists of contacts need not be reentered or built up while the user wants to switch to another e-mail client. The contacts from Windows Mail can be easily exported to any other e-mail client in a simple way. While the export is done, the first and last names are not separately chosen for export. The user can just choose 'Name' and the contact information will be exported to the new e-mail client. The most common and easiest method by which the contacts in Windows Mail can be exported to any other e-mail client is by creating a Comma Separated Values (CSV) file. CSV files are highly recommended because they are universally supported by all e-mail applications and services.

Export Using CSV File
Save Windows Mail contacts to the CSV file and go to the Windows Mail window. Click on 'Tools' and go to 'Windows Contacts'. Click the 'Export' tab and from the new pop-up window that appears select 'CSV'. Again click 'Export' and then browse and save the contacts that you have exported to a folder by clicking on 'Browse'. Click 'Save' after typing in the file name. In the CSV export window click 'Next' and then check the field to be exported. Finally Click 'Finish' and then click 'OK'.
Create Back up
The exporting of contacts from Windows Mail to any other e-mail client is a comparatively simple process. But it is recommended that the user should take regular backups on a removable media or on another machine before the contacts are exported to the other e-mail client. This prevents loss of information even if there arises any issue while exporting or any virus attack or a crash of the hard disk.
The exporting of contacts from Windows Mail to any other e-mail client should be done by creating a CSV file. This CSV file is an ASCII text that allows users to easily view and import it in different programs. Moreover, CSV files are supported by all the e-mail programs and so there will not be any difficulty for users in exporting. Users should create the CSV file first and then export the contacts.
