It was bound to happen – I finally got a Mac at work for most of the web/media authoring I do. It’s important for me to at least be able to send email (i.e. attachments) without having to go an extra step by copying things like PSD and movie files over to linux just so I can send an email from there…
* Open the Evolution Email app and go to your contacts card
* Select all the contacts
* Right-click one of them and select “Save as VCard…”
* Save the file as list.vcf
* Open in Apple mail (you’ll need to email for FTP the file over to your mac)
The one thing I was surprised (and a bit annoyed at) was that is a lot of Evolution metadata that’s been stored in the Apple address book: Things like “X-EVOLUTION-FILE-AS: Last, First”, X-EVOLUTION-LAST-USE, and X-EVOLUTION-USE-SCORE. Otherwise, it’s alright and definitely a lot better than having to retype all your contacts manually.
