How do I export my email contacts? *** This post and feature is only applicable for users who created a liveBooks account before 08.06.2015

Below are the steps to export your liveBooks webmail contacts into a format that can be used to import into other email programs. 

LiveBooks is not able to offer help with using spreadsheet applications like Microsoft “Excel” or Apple “Numbers” or with the import process with your email application or other software. Please refer to the documentation that came with your program if further assistance is needed. 
 
 
Method 1:
  • Log into your webmail (make sure it is set to the rich web mail and not the classic version), go to your address book and select the contacts you wish to export. Right-click the items and choose “print” from the contextual menu. 

 

  • The items to be printed will appear in a new web page. You may cancel the print job, if you wish, since printing the table is not needed for exporting the data. Select and copy the data 

 

  • Once the data is copied, it can be pasted into a spreadsheet program. If it’s acceptable that first-name and last-name are in the same field, then you can go on to step 4. If not, please see instructions for splitting these fields out for Microsoft Excel and Apple Numbers

 

  • You can then export your data as a CSV file. This file format is useful for importing data to most address book applications. 

 
 
 
Method 2:
 
  • Users (or an automated script) can export address books in the vCard format by going to URL: 
http(s):[web mail hostname]/eonapps/vcf/[domain]/[login name]/[address book path]

    • The [web mail hostname] is the web mail URL. 

    • The [domain] is the domain name.
    • 
The [login name] is the user name. 

    • The [address book path] is the actual book name. The most common is "Personal", but custom books can be exported also*. NOTE: This is case-sensitive.

  • Once entered, they will be prompted for a username/password.
  • A window will pop up asking you to either Open or Save the list.
  • Select Save file and click OK.
  • A save window opens where you can select the location that the file will be saved and the name you'd like to save it as. At the end of the file name add: .vcf
  • Click OK.

** The resulting file can be imported to any email client that accepts *.vcf files.
