I selected my contacts on Gmail and hit Export...I tried exporting them all 3 ways listed and when I hit export nothing happens. It doesn't ask me where I want to save and I check downloads and nothing is there.

Is this because I'm on a Mac? I tried Chrome and Safari.

Please help?

In Gmail, choose the 'vCard format (for importing into Apple Address Book or another application)' option.

By default, the file more than likely ended up in your 'Downloads' folder. If it is not there, check your browser settings, and see if downloads are set to go into another folder.

Import them into your OSX address book, and sync with Mail.

I had all them checked off...that's why it wouldn't work.
After I unchecked them it worked.

Thanks for the response though!
