Managing contacts is a pain in the butt. This is particularly true if you use multiple web-based email accounts. Yesterday Yahoo announced the release of a new tool that at least makes contact consolidation easier. Based on technology from TrueSwitch (the company with the world’s ugliest website), Yahoo joins Gmail and countless others that use the same technology.
Contrary Gmail’s interface though, Yahoo’s tool is more geared towards consolidating multiple sources. The tool is very easy to use. Just select the account types you wish to transfer and the credentials. Once the consolidation is completed, the contacts will be accessible within your Yahoo Mail. The announcement also points out that you can use their built-in tool to get rid of duplicates.
