Import EagleMail Contacts into Google Contacts

Using the contacts.csv file generated during the export process, you can add your EagleMail contacts to your Google Contacts.

Note: Google will automatically populate your contacts with names and email addresses as your email messages copy to Google Mail. The EMU address book will also be available in Google Apps. It is not necessary to complete this process unless you have personal contacts, postal addresses or phone numbers that you wish to retain.

Follow these directions to import your EagleMail contacts into Google Apps:

  1. From your browser, access the EMU Google Apps for Education login page at http://google.emich.edu.
  2. Type in your NetID username (formerly My.Emich username) and Password.
  3. Click the Login Button.
  4. Once you are logged in to Google, click the Google App Launcher link which is located at the top of the page, to the right of your name.
