If you are considering using your AOL WebMail in Outlook, or if you have an e-mail account with both services, you can transfer your AOL contacts to Microsoft Outlook.

  3. 3

    Select “Save” when the “File download” dialogue box opens and then choose a destination for the file on your computer. You have successfully exported your AOL WebMail contacts.
