How to import emails from txt file to excel?

I have a list of emails that are dumped from contacts to a text file.
There are many emails listed and thee must be an easier way to place these items into an excel file.

"First Name Last Name" <email address>, "First Name Last Name" <email address>,...etc  
some items are just listed as <email address>, <email address>,

How do i take that information running together in a txt file and import it into a excel file so each item is in its own cell?

What are you exporting them from?

is this one time job or you need an automation?

I am using UltraEdit (you can install 45 days trial version)

added this to a new document

"First Name Last Name" <email address1>, "First Name Last Name" <email address2>, <email address3>, <email address4>

Ctrl + R : replace : ", " with "^p"

it produced this

"First Name Last Name" <email address1>
"First Name Last Name" <email address2>
<email address3>
<email address4>

then I can copy paste it into excel and use text to columns

does your input contains "<" & ">" characters as well?
