I had to export my contact list from google as an Apple vCard format (for importing into Apple Address Book) because I'm using Linux. About.com doesn't say it but those instructions are for Windows users..Dunce cap coming off now Cool ...Digger

I know it's different but you kept trying. That's the key most of the time.

The nice part about this move is that if Yahoo/Gmail does something you don't like, you have your data safe.

from about.com work for Gmail and Yahoo ( just everything that say's Gmail change to Yahoo) and if you're using Linux or Apple use Apple vCard format instead of csv. Pretty simple now....Digger
