Hi, We have just decided to use your "travelblog" site, it really looks good and we are looking forward to using it on our journey starting Nov 2.

We haven't yet managed to figure out if there is a quick way of uploading all our addresses from our hotmail account? Is it possible to send our URL link to all our friends and ask them to "sign" our address book and hence "save" their address so that they will get the automatic message that a new entry has been made? We have over 200 addresses and we're off in 3 weeks, so don't much fancy copying all addresses ourselves.

Or is there another (better) way?

Thanks very much. Darren & Lotta

Hello and welcome! Currently you can import your address book from Outlook express or you can enter it manually.

We'll be offering Hotmail/gmail/yahoo mail importing before the end of the year.

Cheers!

Wow, that was quick!

Yes, I read about Outlook, problem is that all our addresses are on Hotmail. Any ideas on how to download from Hotmail to Outlook and then to your site?

If that's not possible, do you have a "quick-fix" solution, or am I spending the next 2 weeks typing in the addresses myself??? (Please, noooo)

Cheers

Hi, i just updated mne and yes as lucky says hotmail/yahoo is going to have to be a manual thing but i basically opened two windows at the same time (Travelpod adressess and hotmail contacts) and simply cut and pasted 10 at a time...took about 15 mins for about 100 addresses,, not that bad really

good luck
