    Gmail contacts export does not work at this time (6/6/09), and has not worked for a year or two. It’s a worthless, dead addition to an otherwise acceptable email process.

  2. JW Says:

    the process works perfectly if you send email addresses to windows live.But to remove then,from windows Live, or try and do the email addresses, to another email address it can be tricky,it worked 100% to export to windows live?

    We have had months of problems ,conflicts and update issues with Microsoft service department workers and Managers.So since Windows Live and windows Defender are 100% Microsoft properties and control.Microsoft can set any control,over everything they own at any time,a service worker or manager,decides they need control.
    They can use their electric equipment,to access your equipment or private properties,and take full control,of all functions,to prevent your access or useages of your windows versions regardless the ownership.Be it personal-privatre or factory installed.But the trick is they all claim they cant fix their invasive tactics.We did the research after they took control these recent 5 + months,and guess what they cant fix their intrusive tactics?.
    We declaired,their tactics,are illegally administered,that their actions,are equil only to,burglary by fales pretence,that they did so to defraud us of opur properties by illegal intery in to our home and equipment as a federal felony.We ask severial workers and Managers to fix-replace our windows series and assist us in the install of the DVD and they all refused then blocked our email access.We as customere need these illegal acts and actors brought to justice.Their actions not only defrauded us, but the costs,OUT OF OUR POCKETS, were in excess of $1,500.00.

    The instructions worked well for me on 8.3.2010.  It was not an exact transfer, and I had to recreate groups, but that’s much better then entering in each contact!
    Thank you bharath!

    Still did not work, followed instructions exactly.  really stupid how gmail manages contacts.  I would go back to Outlook but that has drawbacks too.
