Addressbook2pine is a utility that allows you to sync your OS X address book with pine's and alpine's addressbook. Simply launch addressbook2pine and it will process all of your contacts in your address book and create a tab delimited file readable by pine/alpine.
The resulting .addressbook file will contain the following values for each field:
|Pine||OS X Addressbook|
|Nickname||Company, Group, Phone, Birthday, Nickname, First Name, Last Name, First & Last name, blank + optional unique id and optional email id.|
|Fullname||Full name (First, Middle, Last, and Suffix) + optional email id.|
|Fcc||Global fcc path + Contact's Group, Email, or Full Name.|
|Comment||Notes, Company, Group, Url, Phone, or Birthday.|
|Addresses||Email(s) (with optional distribution lists)|
Addressbook2pine can also take all contacts in a pine/alpine .addressbook file and import them into OS X Address Book. Each successfully imported contact is then automatically added to a group within OS X Address Book labeled "addressbook2pine" for easy tracking purposes.
What's new in this version:
Addressbook2pine now works with OS X 10.6. It can also successfully run in "pine2addressbook" mode where you can completely import your pine .addressbook files to OS X Address Book..
