Importing gmail contacts into claws mail


from the help files:

How can I convert my old mailbox / address book from (some mail client).


If you can export your old mailbox to MH or mbox format it can be imported directly into Claws Mail. If the mailbox is in MH format you can use /File/Add Mailbox/MH... If the mailbox is in mbox format, it can be imported with /File/Import mbox file/...


The Claws Mail address book supports direct import from Mutt, Pine, and LDIF and vCard formats, which are standard formats exported by most email clients.


In addition, several scripts are provided on the Claws Mail website to convert various mailbox and address book formats.


If your old addressbook only supports CSV export, and it is not supported by the csv2addressbook.plscript on the website, you can convert it to vCard format using this online tool. Another online toolcan convert from vCard to LDIF format.
