    Great video, you’re a great teacher. I don’t use Outlook (I know…don’t say anything!) so I’ll have to wait to use David’s computer. All my contacts are in my Yahoo account. How would I export them as I did not see that as an option?

      Hi Marisol, here is how you export your contacts from Yahoo:
      Hi Marison, here is how you can export your Yahoo contacts and import them into Microsoft Outlook:

      1. Log in to your Yahoo account
      2. Select the Contacts folder on the left
      3. Select the grey Tools button on the horizontal menu bar
      4. Select the Export button
      5. Select the Export Now button next to Microsoft Outlook. The file will be in a “csv” format
      6. Place your csv file on your computer desktop or somewhere where you’ll be able to retrieve it. 🙂

        Import the file into Microsoft Outlook

      1. Select your Contacts folder in Outlook
      2. Select the File menu
      3. Select Import and Export
      4. Select Import from another program or file
      5. Select the Next button
      6. Select Comma Separated Values (Windows)
      7. Select the Next button
      8. Select the Browse button and select the file. Leave the option for duplicates (you can clean up the duplicates later – just to be safe)
      9. Select the Next button. The designation folder must be your Contacts folder
      10. Select Next. You will see the file in the window with “Import” before the file name.
      11. Select the Finish button to complete the task.

      Your contacts will be in Outlook at this point. Now, go through all your contacts, revisit them, categories them, add notes and key words for searching.

      If you would like to take an Outlook class in the near future, I’m offering one on Friday, March 18th at Check A Pro in Katy, Texas.
