Have you been migrated to the new SmartZone yet?    I know that with the Plaxo Universal Address Book that you can tell it import your contacts from Outlook.      I didn't do that because while I have Outlook on my laptop, it's my work laptop and I didn't want those contacts in my personal e-mail's address book.

 

You can also export your contacts from Outlook into a CSV file and import them into SmartZone (or Webmail for that matter).

Did you click in Outlook on File/Export?  What do you see there?  You should see comma seprated value (CSV)/text file)

File...Import and Export...   to activate the Outlook Import/Export Wizard (at least that is how it's done in Outlook 2003).

I just checked Outlook 2007- Here ya go:

Open Outlook- Click on File/ Export.  Next:  Select 'Export to a file' option.  Click on next. 

Now select comma separated values(windows) , click on next.

In the 'Export to a file' window: Select 'Contacts'. 

In the 'Export to a file' window, click on browse, select a location to save the cvs file ( I would save to desktop) & give it a name, then press save, then next. 

Check the window, and if all is correct, click on finish.

 

Now you can import into Comcast.  File/Import... navigate to where you have the cvs file ( I would save to desktop so you can find it easily now)

 

Let us know how far you get...

Moved to it's own thread since this question is not the same as the thread marked as solved already.
