Re-entering all your email addresses and contact names when you switch to Outlook from Yahoo Mail, or between any two email clients, can be a problematic task. Fortunately, some advanced tools make the process easy and straightforward. The Comma Separated Value (CSV) file is one of the features used by email programs to import and export contacts between programs while they can’t connect them directly. If you save your Yahoo email account contacts as a CSV file, then you can also open it in Excel to edit the file if you want to insert or delete data.
