    Default No way to import contacts from Thunderbird

    Hi,

    I tried to import contact from Thunderbird 2.0.0.23 Ubuntu to Zimbra zcs-5.0.18_GA In Debian 4.0 in CSV format but no contacts are imported and I got any error messages !?

    What is the right way to import contact from Thunderbird ?

    Thanks in advance.

    Sam.

    It wiil be better to fix the import script in Zimbra, most of our user use Thundbird

    Thanks anyway.

    Ok, I found Zindus but it only copy the user name but no email addresses !?

    I use Thunderbird v 2.0.0.23 on Ubuntu 9.04

    Why don't fix the Zimbra import script ???

    The import script works fine if you use the required format for the csv file.

    The zindus addon syncs:
    Zimbra: email address #1 with Thunderbird: PrimaryEmail and
    Zimbra: email address #2 with Thunderbird: SecondEmail

    Well I've already pointed you to the wiki article and the script that will convert the Thunderbird format, that will do what you need.

    I tried this python script but with the same result, as well with Zindus sync installed in Thunderbird, perhaps it's a problem with the import module in Zimbra ?

    As I said I can't tell to my users to hack their CSV file before importing in Zimbra.

    Thanks anyway for your help...
