Quick tip for importing addresses into Thunderbird

I recently needed to import my Address Book to Thunderbird, but using CSV format was a real pain in the "bottom" and a lot of errors were showing in the final result.

If your previous Mail program uses a vCard format it's better to use this one as it is widely accepted. And yes, I know that Thunderbird doesn't support it. That's where the tip comes in :-)

Use this on-line conversion tool to convert your vCard-formatted address book into the LDIF format which is accepted by Thunderbird. Guaranteed success :-)

Tip from Thunderbird Help Documentation
