Even though I don’t use Outlook, I imported all of me contacts into Outlook, and then exported the csv_DOS file, and it worked!

…Except… I still had some problems. I think it was because, I had too many contacts (2,000). So I divided it up into two files and it worked fine. I divided up the Outlook CSV-DOS file into two by 1) deleting half my contacts in outlook, exporting the csv-DOS file, 2) going back to Outlook, hitting Ctrl-Z to undo the deletion, erasing the other half of my contacts (those that where already exported),and then exporting again…

Sounds like changing browsers is simpler! but I just wanted to give people an alternative.
