Creating contacts

To create a contact:

  1. Click Contacts along the left side of any page.
  2. Click the New Contact button in the top-left corner of the Contact Manager.
  3. Enter your contact's information in the appropriate fields.
  4. Click Save to add your contact.
You can enter additional contact info by clicking More Information or by clicking the add link next to the appropriate field. Enter your contact's information in the appropriate fields and click Save.

Email addresses are automatically added to your Contacts list each time you use the Reply, Reply to all, or Forward functions to send messages to addresses not previously stored in your Contacts list. If these addresses don't appear immediately, try waiting a few minutes or signing out of your account and signing back in. "Also, each time you mark a message as 'Not Spam,' your Contacts list is automatically updated so that future messages from that sender are received in your inbox.

Note: These instructions work only with the newer version of Gmail. If they don't match what you see in your Contact Manager, we suggest that you upgrade to a fully supported browser or click Newer version in your account.

Importing Contacts by CSV

You can import your address books (from Outlook, Hotmail, Yahoo!, orkut, and other services) into Gmail. Importing your contacts isn't difficult. To get started, follow these steps:

  1. First, you'll need to format your contacts as a CSV file -- often times, address books exported from other mail providers are already formatted as CSV files. You can also create your own CSV file.
  2. Once you have a CSV file with all your contacts' information, import the file and transfer your contacts to Gmail. Note that you can only import up to 3000 contacts at a time. If you have more than 3000 contacts, you'll need to create multiple CSV files to upload.

Creating Contact Groups

To create a contact group:

  1. Click Contacts along the side of any page.
  2. Click the New Group button located in top portion of the Contact Manager.
  3. Enter the name of the group.
  4. Click OK.

To add contacts to a contact group:

  1. Select the contacts in the Contacts list, or Search Contacts, if a contact does not show up in the list.
  2. Open the Groups drop-down menu.
  3. Under Add to..., select the group you'd like to add the contact to, or select New group to create a new group.
Note: These instructions work only with the newer version of Gmail. If they don't match what you see in your Contact Manager, we suggest that you upgrade to a fully supported browser or click Newer version in your account.
