Move AOL addresses to Address Book
Authored by: cubeman on Jul 28, '04 07:24:59PM

By reading the hints here, I came up with this work around.
1. Launch AOL Communicator. Import AOL addresses from regular AOL.
2. Export into LDIF.
3. Launch Mozilla, Import LDIF file.
4. Export to CSV format.
5. Launch Entourage, Import CSV file.(In the mapping window, you have to drag the little button from the right to the left, but not too far to set up the right mapping.
6. Export list as text file.
7. Import into Palm
8. Export as a vCard
9. Import in Mac Address Book
10. Yaaaa!!!

This was sent in as a hint submission, but it's really a reply to this comment, so here it is:
I began to follow the instructions of CUBEMAN on 7/28 to do this. However it occurred to me that the Mac address book might like an LDIF file created by Mozilla better than that created by AOL Communicator. So... after CUBEMAN's step #3, importing the Communicator LDIF file into Mozilla, I simply exported the LDIF file from Mozilla. Then I imported it into the Mac address book and it worked perfectly well.

Move AOL addresses to Address Book

SIMPLY THE BEST METHOD

search google for whatever file format from/to you want to go... I found this page for converting CSF to VCF (VCARD)

http://homepage.mac.com/phrogz/CSV2vCard_v2.html

Before that I was able to use
1. AOL Communicator to export --> LDIF
2. MOZILLA import LDIF --> CSV
3. Above link used to convert CSV to VCF
