Importing Contacts from Mac Address Book

A few people have asked whether it’s possible to import contacts from their Mac Address Book. The answer is yes, but it’s not immediately straightforward, so we figured we’d post the steps on how to successfully accomplish this.

To Export from Mac Address Book:

  1. Open Address Book version X.0 or greater.
  2. Highlight the Group labeled “All” to view all of your entries, and tap the right arrow key to select an entry.
  3. Select all of your entries by going to the Edit menu and selecting “Select All”.
  4. From the File menu, select “Export vCard”
  5. Enter a name for the file and a location where it will be saved.

Next, Import into Anyvite:

  1. Click the “Import Contacts” button on the Address Book page.
  2. Click the area that has the Plaxo and America Online logos. You may need to disable your popup blocker for this step.
  3. When the Plaxo pop-up window appears, select the “Other” option.
  4. Next, from the drop-down menu, select “vCard (.vcf)”, and select the file you created during the export process.
  5. Click Next, and you should see a list of all of your contacts that you imported. Simply choose the ones you want to import into Anyvite, and click the next button.
  6. The pop-up window should disappear, and the text box on the main Anyvite page should now be populated with your contacts. Click the “Invite Contacts” button and you’re done!

Hope that helps everyone who’s been trying to import from the Mac Address Book!
