Import to an existing list

It is important that you understand Cakemail abides by anti-spam laws and we do not tolerate any form of spamming: you therefore must have permission from the contacts to add them to your list.

Note: Only CSV’s may be used to import a list of contacts.

  • Go to Contacts
    • If you have multiple lists, click on the name of list you wish to update
  • Click on Add…
  • Select Import contacts
  • Click Browse to find the contact list file on your computer or drag the file to the text box


  • Click on Continue
  • Place a check next to the fields you want to keep for your list. If the custom fields aren’t already in your list, you can create new fields at this step and copy their names from the header columns of your CSV


  • Click on Submit


You will be alerted once the process is complete. Once it is done, you will be able to see your new contacts under the active subscribers list.

For the time being, fields that include date/times have to be added in a yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm:ss format, otherwise the field will be replaced with N/A.
