    Default import evolution contacts into kmail


    recently I installed evolution, had my contacts and mails all set up
    perfectly. after a backup, I had to format my drive after messing up my
    install. now I'd like to import my contacts into kmail without having to
    install evolution.
    is there a way to do this?
    help and suggestions appreciated.

    IMHO contacts for Kmail are in Kaddress, part of Kontact. It has an
    Import item in its File menu with quite a list of formats. Take a look
    if one of them fits with a fomat evolutions exports.

    ok, tried that. no works

    what I am trying to import is the addressbook.db thats stored deep down
    in the .evolution folder.

    I think that I can open it with the database client from openoffice,
    but I need to install that too.

    I'm in a similar situation. I'm running opensuse 11 and I would like to
    upgrade to 11.1 but I need few basic things working and one is the
    e-mail client. I have been able to migrate all the messages and address
    book without problem but I can not get e-mail and the pop server is
    setup ok. Kmail on the other hand works OK. If I have to abandon
    evolution I will be like you. So here is what I have:

    First you have to export the address books from evolution. Evolution
    has a hidden program that can do this work

    /usr/lib64/evolution/2.24/evolution-addressbook-export --format=csv >
    mail_address_book.csv

    Second you import this file in Kmail.

    Do so backups just in case.

    The other alternative is to export as vcards but I had a little problem
    with.

    Well I will try to have evolution working if not ...
