How to Easily Export Email Addresses from a WordPress Site

There are a number of reasons why you might want to export the email addresses of users on your site.

Maybe you had a newsletter or subscription service that you’re moving to an offsite provider. Or maybe you just need to import the address into a different plugin or piece of software.

WordPress doesn’t exactly make it easy to extract the email addresses of users on your site out of the box, but there’s a plugin that will let you do the trick very easily.

Plugin for Exporting Emails

At least one plugin you can use for this job is called Export Emails.

After activating the plugin, you will see a new menu item under your Tools section: Tools > Export Emails.

Going to that page, you will see two sections – one for registered users on your site and one for commenters.

Clicking inside the boxes will let you copy the list and paste it wherever you like.

Of course one thing to keep in mind with a plugin like this is to make sure you have users’ permission to use their email addresses in the manner you plan to.
