Archive your contacts using an Excel file

One of the different archive options in Moosend lets you archive your email marketing email list using an Excel file containing your contacts. You can use either XLS or XLSX files up to 40MB. If your content contains any special characters make sure you upload a UTF-8 file for maximum compatibility.

To archive your contacts from a CSV or TXT file:

  1. In the top navigation bar, hover your mouse over the Audience tab, and then click Email lists.archive_members_excel_1.png
