Whether you want to secure your Yahoo contacts by backing them up on a file or you need to migrate your Yahoo contacts list to another email service, you should start by exporting them. There’s no need to manually copy down all your contacts so that you can recreate them one by one later on.
In Yahoo Mail, it’s not only easy to manage your contacts, but it’s also easy to export them to a format that enjoys almost universal popularity and compatibility: CSV. Importing email addresses from CSV files in some email providers may not always work perfectly, but usually, it does, and you retain all your email addresses.
