Import Gmail Contacts
Last modified on 24 June 2017 04:33 PM

StartMail supports two methods to import contacts stored in Gmail: direct import from Gmail and import from a CSV file exported from Gmail. To perform the following steps, you will have to access StartMail through your web browser, by navigating here: https://startmail.com

To import your contacts directly from Gmail, follow these steps:

  1. From a web browser, log in to your StartMail account.
  2. Click Contacts from the top, right corner of your StartMail page, and then select Import.
  3. Select the Gmail logo from the list of proprietary sources supported by StartMail. Please note: if you are not already signed into your Gmail account you must enter your Gmail login credentials to proceed.
  4. Click the Accept button to grant permission for StartMail to access your Gmail contacts.
  5. Click the Import button from the "Import your contacts directly" section to continue.
  6. A confirmation message will be displayed to list the imported contacts.  Click the Continue button to complete the process.

 

To export your contacts from Gmail into a CSV file, follow these steps (CSV files allow data to be saved for importing and exporting purposes): 

  1. Log in to Gmail and go to Contacts > More > Export.  If you want to import all your contacts or a specific contact group, you don't need to do anything else at this stage. Alternately, you can highlight the individual contacts if you want to import just those specific contacts.
  2. Select which contacts you would like to upload: you can export by group, export all your contacts or export the contacts you selected in Step 1.
  3. Select Google CSV as the format to export.
  4. Click Export.
  5. Name the file and save it to disk.

 

To import your contacts from a CSV file exported from Gmail, follow these steps:

  1. From a web browser, log in to your StartMail account.
  2. Click Contacts from the top, right corner of your StartMail page, and then select Import.
  3. Select the Gmail logo from the list of proprietary sources supported by StartMail.
  4. Click the Choose File button and select the file you exported, then click the Import button.
  5. A confirmation message will be displayed to list the imported contacts.  Click the Continue button to complete the process.
