Completion of Migration

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
I went to write an email and found the address wasn't in the Mac's address book. This reminded me that I needed to export the address book from Thunderbird to the Mac's address book.
Funnily enough, googling let me down, all the hits were for imports in the opposite direction (makes you wonder), or at least covering import to Thunderbird, since some were escaping Outlook.

Turns out that Thunderbird can export as LDIF and Mac address book can import it, with a nice interface to manage most of the conflicts. The ones it didn't handle were where two valid email addresses were conflicting over a single field, eg "work email". Since one of them was either out of date or improperly labelled I can't blam the Mac.
