Import a mailing list

Postby burnmoor » 10:45am, Fri 28 Jun, 2013

Hello All,

Hope I'm in the right place here!

Can I ask how to import a mail list from Yahoo Mail into my PHPlist?

Thank you

Graeme

Can you export your list from Yahoo as a csv file?

If you can, do so, then export a dummy file from phplist and compare both files and ensure that your yahoo file has the same headings as your phplist file. Once these match, you should be able to import the resulting csv file into phplist.

Latest phpList version is now 3.0.12 (3 February 2015) and requires a minimum of MySQL 5.0 and PHP 5.3.x

Thank you,

I found out that if I export it opens up in MS Excel, then I can save it as a csv file?

Also can I do this with just one mail group?

Thank you
