Ok - saving the contacts to a vcf file worked. Finding how to access the contact checkbox was a complete stumble upon. Thanks for the tip on the select all box. Plus, I am so old school it took me a second to recognize the share button, not something I often use.
On the other hand, I discovered that Dekko mail won't send attachments or access my contact list. I really like UT but there are some things that don't work that surprise me.
