What is CSV file?
The explanation of CSV is comma separated values and this is an extension which is widely used in Microsoft Excel. Whenever you save a file in PC then it save with .csv extension.
And this types of files with .csv extension uses in all major email services. If you want to transfer your contracts form one email to another then you have to download the records. And the records file download with .csv extension which can be open in Microsoft Excel application.
Similarly in Google feedburner when a subscriber subscribe in your email list then they create email list on a CSV file. And we need that CSV file to transfer our total subscriber list to new feed or newsletter services.
