    Hi, im a recent switcher and i`m having trouble setting up the mail app. I got all the contacts i need at hotmail, and i managed to export to CSV, but i still could import it to the Address Book. I tried goint to file>import?>import from txt and tried getting address book importer. neither worked (obviously).

    thanks for all the help

    Your title is misleading. It should be CSV to Address Book. A CSV file is simple ASCII text. In Address Book, chose File/Import>Text file.... This does not imply, however, that your CSV file has the fields in the proper order. You may find that you must edit the file to ensure that the fields are in the proper order.

    hotmail contacts to mac address book

    Use gmail. You can import the csv file into gmail. Gmail will ask which format to export your contacts. vcard format is the third choice. works great. I still needed to manually clean up my address book, but still easy and free.
