Hi thereI am using Thunderbird email and I have a list of email addresses in a folder that are there but cannot be used. I try to send an email to one of these contacts and its like they do not exist. I decided to try and export the email addresses to a csv and this worked. They were all listed there..then I imported the same list but it imported nothing.. Whats wrong with these email addresses? I actulally typed them in myself by hand so what could be the problem?March 31, 2009 at 9:55 am #31636
Unfortunately I cannot use the other answers you gave me until I figure out why I can't use these email addresses. Could I have entered them wrong?March 31, 2009 at 10:12 am #31637

What do you meant they dont exist? The emails bounce back at you? They wont send? You click on send and the window disappears and nothing seems to have happened? I can't explain your address book problem. Are you saying you have already entered them manually into thunderbird, or that you typed them in yourself into outlook? What I suggest is that you rename the .csv file to .txt, open the file with notepad, then manually add addresses and details for each user by copying and pasting from the .txt file. Its not ideal, I know, but at least it will work. Its very easy to make a mistake typing and often its better to copy and paste.The best I can think of is that perhaps thunderbird cant read a .csv file, which would surprise me as its just a text file, but not sure about that right now. I will find out, though.

Ok you are going to think I am an idiot but I have figured out my problem. I went back and checked how the email addresses were entered into the contacts list and it was not a pretty picture. I had put the email address into the first name field and entered no email address at all… It still came up in the contacts as an email address just like the others... I can't believe I did that.. And I can't believe Thunderbird let me get away with it.March 31, 2009 at 10:23 am #31639
