Import Address Book records into to Thunderbird
Authored by: fluffhead612 on Mar 29, '05 02:16:22AM

Another method, which worked very well for me, is to use the Plaxo ( account I have leftover from my Windows days, may I never think of them again.

Exported all my cards from Address Book, imported into Plaxo via their simple web dealie, then exported back out as LDIF and into Thunderbird. Took 2 minutes.

No scripts, no Java, not particularly slick, but effective nonetheless.

Why may you never think of Plaxo again? Well in any case, you don't have to just use Plaxo as a one-time import of contacts. With the Plaxo Thunderbird Client you can use Plaxo as a poor man's (i.e. free) dotMac synchronization client as it will keep your contacts in Tbird synchronized between all your machines.

Now all we need is a Address Book client....
