How to Export a Group From GroupMail

“Can I export a group from GroupMail?”

Yes! GroupMail makes it very easy to export contact groups as comma separated value (.csv) files so that you can use them in other environments outside of GroupMail.



Step 1

In the Groups area, highlight the group you want to export and select Export from the navigation panel on the left-hand side of the screen. Alternatively, you can just right-click the group and select Export.






Step 2

Confirm the group you wish to export and select a destination where you want the file to be saved. Then, click Next




* Please note that I omitted changing the extension from .txt (which is the default,) to .csv. This is important especially if your are exporting a group with multiple fields which you want to import into another database or address book. If you forget to do that (like I did) in this steop, you can always just [re]save the file later as a .csv instead of .txt.



Step 3

Select each field that you want to export from the group. In this example, I am only exporting the email address and first name of each contact in the group. Then, click Next.






Step 4

Click Export






Step 5

Click OK when the export has finished






Step 6

Open the exported .csv file from the location you saved it to if you want to review it. You can now easily import this .csv file into other contact databases and address books.




*** The Mac Address Book requires at least two fields in you .csv file before it will recognize it, so export the Email field and one other as shown in Step 3 above.


That’s all there is to it.
