    Import contacts into Mail

    Can someone please tell me how to import my Thunderbird email contacts into Win10 Mail? I have exported my TB address book to a cvs file if that is any help.
    Thanks in advance.

    Hi Tony.

    You would import them into your Web based mail,, gmail.

    When you sign into W10 mail and it uses that account for the People app it should sync and they will appear.

    The linked People App is where contacts are, the link is next to the Cog in The Mail App.
    You can't use the *.CSV file directly however you can link with a Gmail Account.
    Use the Webmail interface for Gmail > Contacts > More > Import > Contacts from CSV.

    You maybe able to do this with an Outlook Mail Account, though I don't find that specific option.
    Or maybe some other Account you have selected in the People App, or setup in the Mail App.
