How do i import gmail contacts from desktop pc to TPG's Email program please.


Hi @jeffwonder,


Welcome to TPG Community!


If you would like to transfer your contacts from your Gmail account to your TPG email account, you need to export the contacts from your Gmail.


To export Gmail contacts:

1. From your Gmail account, click Gmail -> Contacts.
2. Click More >.
3. Click Export.
4. Select the contact group you wish to export.
5. Select the export format "vCard Format"
6. Click Export.


To transfer it to your TPG E-mail account (via Post Office):


1. Once logged-in via Post office, click on "Contacts"

2. Just below it, click the arrow pointing upwards (in between 'Mail' and 'Export')

3. Search for the exported file (vCard format)

4. Click "Open"


You are done.


Let us know should you require further assistance.

As a matter of interest, how would you a) export your contacts from TPG to a gmail account;

b) set up your TPG email so that emails were copied to a gmail accunt.  Could this be done for incomingand outgoing emails?

Does export (or import) in this mean copying the contacts or actually moving them (I'm fearful of making a slip up and losing the lot forever)!

I suppose it would be a good idea to prune or amend the contact list before doing any of this?


Hi @oscarcat,


Welcome to the Community.


Exporting your contacts would only copy it. So no worries in thinking that your contacts will be remove. Smiley Happy


Should you wish to copy your contacts from your TPG Email, you would need first to save your contacts.

  1. Log in to
  2. Click Contacts Tabimage.png
  3. Put a tick on the Contacts you would like to contact copy then click on the arrow down or just select on Export All


Now, to save it to your Gmail,  you'll have to use the Google Contacts site in order to do this. You can probably use the site in the browser on your phone if you would like to. The process would be as follows:


  1. Open the Contacts app.
  2. Tap the app's menu button.
  3. Tap More.
  4. Tap Import.
  5. Select Import vCard file, and tap OK.
  6. If you have multiple vCard files in the location selected, you'll have to select which vCard file to import
  7. Tap OK.
