    Default Y! Contacts CVS wont work

    Hello, I exported my Yahoo! Address Book contacts as CVS and tried to import them into Zimbra but I get this error:

    missing config file /Users/GuillaumeB/zimbra/zdesktop/conf/zimbra-contact-fields.xml

    Any idea?

    Thanks mmorse. That's a pretty serious bug as a mail client with out contacts is pretty useless and I certainly dont feel like manually entering them Looking forward to a transparent synchronization with the Yahoo! Address Book in the future.
    Keep up the good work

    Smile How do you stick the file to fix the problem with importing address book

    I totally do not know what to do to get my address book imported into Zimbra Destop. I made a csv file and it is not working.

    I am on a macbook running OS Leopard.

    I saw this note on sticking the file and do not have a clue on what has to be done.

    Can you give me simple (for dummies - smile) instructions on what to do so I can try this solution.

    I have over 1000 email addresses that I use and I need to get them into the Zimbra address book.

    Many thanks, gailp

    Hi
    Basically download the file that is attached in this thread and rename it to zimbra-contact-fields.xml (get rid of .txt)

    I am on a Mac and I have copied the file to Zimbra/ZDesktop/conf

    (I suspect this wouldbe lcated in Progra files on a WIndows machine(?)

    Then rebootyour machine

    AFter that the address book should be able to import a CVS file and the calendar should be able to import an ICS file. It worked for me

    Default Can not edit contacts or create new contacts

    Many thanks - it worked somewhat.

    I was able to import my .csv file.

    I can not edit contacts imported and I can not create new contacts.

    So what do I do to fix this?
