    Login to your Yahoo mail account from a browser and click on contacts like in my screen shot. Then click select all. Then under the actions dropdown click export all. From the next screen select the VCARD all in one file format then click to download.

    If you are using Safari, there is a bug that keeps this from working properly, so you need to follow the workaround on this page.

    Once you have downloaded the VCARD file just double click it and you will be asked if you want to import it into the OS X Address Book. Just click yes to import and you are all done. Now when you go to send new Mail messages these addresses you imported to the Address Book will show up when you start typing a name in the To: filed of the new message.
