Description

15 years ago
Branch build 2002-07-18: WinMe

Overview: Import a Communicator 4. address book and the user currently has to
know where the *.na2 files are stored. It would be nice if we could atleast
point them to the 4.x User's directory where the 4.x profiles are stored.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Select Tools|Import
2. Select the Address Books radio button
3. Select the Communicator 4.x radio button

Actual Results: A "Select Address book file" dialog appears giving the user the
ability to choose a file. At this point the user has to know they are looking
for an *.na2 file and they must know where it resides on their system.

Expected Results: It would be better if this dialog placed the user in the
Netscape User's directory so they could atleast see the profile names.

[RFE] is deprecated in favor of severity: enhancement.  They have the same meaning.
