    No option in yahoo contacts to import CSV contact file from desktop pc, only options are to import all contacts from a limited number of different mail accounts (e.g. Outlook, Gmail etc.). I just want to import a group contact exported to an Excel CSV file from Outlook and import it into my Yahoo contacts. Web help says click on actions in contacts but there is no actions button in contacts.
