Details

Using build 20000104 on win98, mac and linux an imported .txt address book does
not map the 4.7 URL field to the Web Page field in 5.0.

0. Export an address book (one that has a card with an entry in the URL field)
using the Text Delimiter format.
1. Launch Messenger
2. Open Address Book using Task menu
3. Select Import and import the address book you just exported.
4. Now select the Card that had an entry in the URL field of 4.7

Result:  The 4.7 URL field data was not imported to the Web Page field in 5.0
Expected: The URL data to map to the Web Page field.

Interesting Note:  I then performed this same scenario using the .ldif format
and the URL data transferred to the Web Page field.  I then rechecked the
imported .txt abook AND... and viewed the same card it now had the data.

Summary: URL field from 4.7 abook card doesn't map to Web Page field in 5.0 when importing tab delimited → URL field from 4.7 abook card doesn't map to Web Page field in 5.0 when importing tab delimited
We don't save the URL field when export the address book to a .txt file in 4.x.
If you import the same .txt file in 4.x, you can't find the URL field.  We
do expotrt URL field in .ldif file in 4.x.

You're right, I was going to view my .txt file in an editor to see if the URL
was even exorted, but I didn't get around to it.  Verified as invalid
Question: What if another product exported the URL or equivalent, would we
import it then?
