Hi there and welcome

Exactly how do you have this list? In which type of file?

Customer: replied 12 months ago.
All I have is the list of email addresses in the To: ***** ***** the email that was sent previously
Expert:  Richard replied 12 months ago.

In which email program do you have this in?

I can see you are a first time user to the site. What we do here is either a question and answer type of conversation or remote support where I would actually connect to the computer and have a look and attempt to fix the problem for you.

Remote support can save a lot of time if you are not comfortable performing repairs yourself. Sometimes even with instructions you can make a mistake and make things worse.

I will send an offer through for remote support and should you accept I will connect and see what is going on and fix the issue. Otherwise we can continue to talk like this but I will need to ask a number of other questions and try and walk you through some steps.

Both options are 100% guaranteed by the way. Remote is just quicker and avoids the risk of you making a mistake and doing something wrong.

If you want remote click get extra help. If not simply reply to me.

in Mail (apple) or gmail
Expert:  Richard replied 12 months ago.

ok, you mentioned two, which of the two is it please?

Customer: replied 12 months ago.
I have it in both. I can use whichever is easier
Expert:  Richard replied 12 months ago.

ok, in Gmail, click and drap over the addresses so they are all selected.

Then press CMD + C

Then open Excel

Press CMD + V to paste the email addresses in

Then you need to repeat in Excel to copy each address into its own cell under each other so you have one column of addresses.

Then choose Save as and choose CSV as the file type

this will then save it as a CSV

Let me know please how you go

Thank you

Is there no way of doing it all at once? The list is several hundred addresses and will take forever if I have to each one individually.
Expert:  Richard replied 12 months ago.

No sorry, there is no structure to them apart from them being in the TO box, so you have to copy them and then organize them into the format in Excel I explained so they can be saved as a CSV

You can reply as then its a little easier to copy, but there is no way shortcutting it, I checked in both programs and not even in additional once like outlook can you do this.
