Importing Contacts

  1. Create a CSV file of your contacts from your previous mail client. If you have recently migrated to GusMail, your Webmail contacts are in the CSV format in your home directory, however if you used an email client, the email client address book would be more up-to-date.
  2. Log into your Google Mail (GusMail for the Gustavus community)
  3. In the top-left corner, click Gmail>Contacts.
  4. On the Google Contacts page, click Import Contacts on the left hand side.
  5. Locate your CSV file on your computer, and click Import.
