Description

12 years ago
The help documentation says that mailnews can import communicator address book
files, this isn't correct as we can't. We can only import ldap settings from
communicator (4.x). It also says:

"Tip: Communicator address book files (pab.na2) are
      stored in your user profile directory (for example, C:\Program
      Files\SeaMonkey\Users, where \Users contains the user profiles
      directories)."

This needs to go as well.

Created attachment 198687 [details] [diff] [review]
Removed references to import address book from NS Communicator.

I left the reference to NS 6: is this correct? Mark?
Maybe we can add NS 7 to the mix...

Yes, NS6 is the standard .mab format that we use now, so we should be able to
import those fine. Ditto for NS7.

I'm not clear what is meant by importing an NS6/7 address book - we just usurp
the entire profile!
