How do I import contacts?
You can import address books from Outlook, Hotmail, Yahoo! and Orkut into your e-GO account. Importing your contacts isn't difficult, but there are a few steps.
First, you'll need to format your contacts as a CSV file - oftentimes, address books exported from other mail providers are already formatted as CSV files. You can also create your own.
Once you have a CSV file with all your contacts' information, you may need to format the file to make it compatible with Gmail. Then, you can import the file and transfer your contacts to your Gmail account. Note that you can only import up to 3,000 contacts at a time. If you have more than 3,000 contacts, you'll need to create multiple CSV files to upload.
