Chandice, how is this one coming along?
I think we are going to do just LDIF and TAB.  I'm currently working on the Tab
file.  So far so good.  I do have to put some extra work to convert the address
book code to use unicode string.
Code is done, ready for check in.

Code checked in.  I believe it still needs to integrate with Tony's UI.  But now
we can import a 4.x exported tab and ldif file.

Using 19991012M11 builds on Win32, mac and linux Import of an .ldif file works.

However you have to close the abook then reopen it to see the newly imported
address book. That's a separate bug (16221).

Import of a tab file does not import on Mac and linux.   On Windows it imports
but not with good field matching results.  I'll log a separte bug for that
(16217).

Reopening this bug as a [PP] for Mac and linux not working yet for import of tab
file.
This shouldn't be M10 I guess, since M10 has already shipped.
Clear milestone, make bug summary reflect the remaining problem.

It is working today on my Mac and Linux debug build for a 4.x generated .txt
file. Please verify on the release build. If it doesn't work, please write
comment on which part doesn't work right.

Using 20000104 builds on win98, mac and linux, importing of a .txt address book
file that was exported with 4.7 using the Tab delimited format works OK on these
platforms.   When using the export utility in 4.7 the the format Tab Delimited
(*.txt, *.tab) saves the file as a .txt if you don't add an extension in the
file name.   If you do add the extension .tab to the file it won't import into
5.0 even though it's the same format as the .txt file.  We need to recognize the
.tab extension too for compatibility with 4.5.  I talked with Candice and will
reopen this bug to include support for this extension.
