Constant Contact bulk export requests are “batch” operations – they are submitted and you need to wait for the report to run before you can download the results. This function will wait a period of time for the export to complete, checking every 5 seconds, and then will download the data when it is ready. If the operation takes too long, use the bulk activity status wizard to see when it finishes, then use the bulk activity download wizard to get the results.

These should start working properly when they fix their server]
