  1. Procedure 1: download the Address Book CSV file from the current system (DEEPMail).
  2. Procedure 2: edit the downloaded CSV file
  3. Procedure 3: import the CSV file to the contact.


Under the current system (DEEPMail), address management is done by the Address Book function, but with the new system (Gmail), addresses can be controlled by the Contact Function. This is an introduction to the data migration import/export procedure.

You do the Address Book data migration yourself. And this function permits the import and export of the data. But it is necessary to combine data items.
