I just discovered that the mbox files are *not* the problem! Exporting
my Address book from Evolution is not intuitively obvious. I found a web
page from May 2006, that says:
"Export the evolution address book with the evolution-addressbook-export
utility in csv format" and it said to use this command:
/usr/lib/evolution/2.X/evolution-addressbook-export --format=csv >
but I cannot find evolution-addressbook-export there.
I have been using Evolution for years, because Upstream defaults to it,
but YUK..... I am moving to Thunderbird and I am not going to look back.
I will keep searching, for a hopefully simple way to Export my contacts
from Evolution, so I can Import them into Thunderbird..... :-)
