Question about Computers & Internet
The problem is, AOL has lots of proprietary data formats and their entire AOL software suite seems custom designed to make it hard for you to switch to another service, as you're now realizing. There's no convenient "Export Address Book" function, for example. Search for that phrase in the AOL 9.0 help system and you'll get clear details on how to export from other programs and import those addresses into AOL Mail, but not a word about how to export from AOL Mail.
All hope isn't lost, however. There are a number of different solutions that might be able to help you, ranging from the Java-based (and apparently obsolete) AOLeave suite to the inexpensive ($25) commercial application ePreserver.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.

I can help you it's not pretty but it works without downloading or buying any programs.
1- create an email with your aol interface
2- open your address book and add everyone
3- don't send the email but select the addresses you have in your "TO" field of the email you created
4- copy the selected addresses to a word processing program like word pad
5- save the new document as a .txt file
6- open this document with Microsoft excel
7- export the document with a CSV file format
8- outlook can import CSV files into the address book
You know its a lot of steps but its the simplest way I have found since AOL hates their customers using other emails and will be as much help as a canker sore on your nose.
I hope this helped. Please don't forget to rate the answer it helps me with my solutions.

a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).
click here to download the app (for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need.
