Mac: How do I export my contacts from Microsoft Entourage?
- Open Microsoft Entourage.
- Select File/Export.
- The menu box that appears asks you what you’d like to export. Select Contacts to a list (tab-delimited text).
- Click the arrow at the bottom of the box.
- At this point, you can just upload the txt file using the Import Contact from a file option from the Add Contacts page in your Benchmark account. You’ll be able to name fields and do further edits in the dashboard.
Though not necessary, between steps 4 and 5, you should consider opening up that txt file in Excel or Numbers. You can delete your unwanted fields (Entourage may export many!) and most importantly, delete the addresses that don’t belong on your email marketing list. Probably not every one of your Entourage contacts is an opt-in email list subscriber. You don’t want spam complaints and their consequences, so please be careful. If you’re unsure about adding anyone, send them a personal email asking for permission to add them to your email list.
