I am setting up a computer in my shop to use specifically to keep in contact with US Navy Shipmates and correspondence as I am the secretary of our reunion organization. The computer I am using has MS Office 2016 installed and I want to use Outlook for email. I have tried every method I could find on Google in detail to export my Thunderbird contact file (CSV)from another computer that is using Thunderbird into the newer computer using MS 2016.. NOTHING SEEMS TO WRK..NOTHING.. The export /import function seems to work but OUTLOOK 2016 doesn't show or can find them. Not looking for solutions as I think I have tried everything but just curious to see if anyone else has had problems with OUTLOOK 2016.. Should be simple but [email protected]#$%^&*.. Everybody stay safe and enjoy the summer

Gmail works fine. Why do you need Outlook?

The file needs to be output in the format that Outlook 2016 needs. I have a contact list that I maintain in GMAIL. I sync that list with Outlook 2016. The GMAIL contacts has an EXPORT TO OUTLOOK option. However, Outlook 2016 chokes on the file. I examined both files and found that GMAIL's format was apparently for a different version of Outlook. Outlook 2016 had a different format. I wrote an EXCEL macro that reads GMAIL's file and writes it out in Outlook 2016's format. Problem solved. For me, anyway.
