Transfer your contacts from Umail to Google at IU

Note:

While you still have Umail access (before your account is migrated during the week of spring break as part of the Umail upgrade), you need to export your contacts. You can then import them when your new Gmail at IU account is available; you must do so before the start of Fall semester, 2018.

Important:
If you haven't yet logged into Google at IU and agreed to Google's Terms of Service, you must do so before March 11, 2018. You'll be prompted to agree immediately after login. Your mail cannot be moved if you haven't completed this action.
  • Export your contacts: While you have Umail access, export your contacts:
    1. Log into Umail.
    2. In the top left corner, click Mail and select Contacts.
    3. At the top, click More and select Export.
    4. Choose the contact groups you wish to export, or select All contacts.
    5. Click Export.
    6. Store the exported contact list in a storage location of your choosing, such as IU Box.
  • Import the file: After you have access to your new Gmail at IU account, go to Import, restore, or back up contacts and follow the instructions in "From a Gmail account" to import the contact list you backed up above; you should see an option to import from a CSV file.
