You can export your contacts from Outlook and import them into Gmail.


To export your contacts:

  1. Open Outlook backstage (ALT-F)
  2. Navigate down to “Open & Export”
  3. Navigate with TAB to the Import/Export button
  4. A small wizard opens through which you can export your Contacts
  5. Follow the wizard screens and export your Contacts to a file with “comma separated values”
  6. Save the file to your computer and note the location, you’ll need it to import the Contacts to Gmail


After exporting your contacts, visit Gmail on the web.

  1. Open the JAWS for Windows button list (CTRL-JAWS KEY-B)
  2. Select and activate the “Google Apps” button
  3. Focus is placed on the Google Apps button, press SPACEBAR to open a drop-down list
  4. Select and activate “Contacts”
  5. Open the JAWS for Windows button list
  6. Select and activate “Import”
  7. Focus is placed on the Import button
  8. Press SPACEBAR to activate it


The Import dialog opens. Navigate to the “Select file” button and activate it. The Windows open file dialog opens.


Navigate the dialog to the Outlook Contacts file. And activate the Open button. Focus returns to the small Import dialog. ‘Activate the “Import” button to import your Outlook Contacts.


Close the Contacts tab to return to Gmail.

I want to import them from my other Outlook account. I’m doing it on the same computer using the gmail website, but I know what I do on there effects/changes my account within Outlook. I’m doing it within settings after I log into my gmail account on the web. My contacts are in Contacts within Outlook.

So there’s no way for me to just ask gmail to just import my contacts?

Since they are completely separate from e-mail messages, yes, there is.

I do not know where/when you are attempting to do this import, which clouds the issue.  Also, where you're importing them from.

Additional details are needed.
