How to import your address book from the TCC into  Alumni.nmt.edu  accounts (Gmail).

  1. First log in to the TCC's webmail front-end (https://webmail.nmt.edu/).
  2. Select "Addresses" from the top menu.

    At the bottom of the Address page select the Export Address Book button. Note: this did not work under Internet Explorer 7 (IE7) for me ... I used FireFox 3.5x!

  3. Save the file.
  4. Edit the file with your favorite TEXT editor. Add the following line to your address book file you just exported:
    Nickname, Full Name, First Name, Last Name, Email Address, Note

    This will add the headers that Google needs to import the file.

  5. Save the file.
  6. Next go to your Google account, and click on Contacts" in the left hand list.
  7. Inside the Contacts Management page there is an import button on the upper right hand side. Select the Import link.
  8. Select the Browse button and navigate to the file you exported from the TCC (and added the header line to).
  9. Select the Import button to import all you contacts.
